Our Score
It was said that MGM's B-pictures looked like other studios' A-features, and this is a good example, with only the absence of star names giving away its modest pretensions. Based, like the classic Stagecoach on an Ernest Haycox story, this also features an assortment of stage passengers and Apaches on the warpath. Charismatic bandit Gilbert Roland joins the group under siege at a way station run by his long-lost son (Robert Horton). Ace editor Harold Kress, on one of his occasional turns at directing, draws a virile performance from Horton, while veterans Gene Lockhart and Glenda Farrell take care of themselves.


A fleeing bandit takes refuge in a remote desert outpost while hordes of Indian pursuers lay siege outside. Western, starring Gilbert Roland, Glenda Farrell, Robert Horton and Barbara Ruick.
