Review

Our Score
Randolph Scott stars as a former Quantrill's Raider, cleaning up a town with the help of outlaw Jesse James, in this sturdy Fox western from skilled producer Nat Holt. As James, Holt cast newcomer Dale Robertson, who later achieved fame in such TV series as Tales of Wells Fargo and The Iron Horse. Look out for Gone with the Wind's carpetbagger Victor Jory, third-billed here below Scott and Bill Williams.
