Review

Our Score
Ray Milland joined up with the minor Republic studio as producer, director and star, and acquitted himself well on all three counts in making this offbeat western. Milland doesn't say a word for the first third of the film, which casts him as a mysterious loner who arrives in town, only to be accused of committing a stagecoach robbery. The house he takes refuge in belongs to sheriff Ward Bond, who's quarantined with yellow fever. Although it becomes more routine towards the end, this is still a jump ahead of most westerns of the time, especially those made by Republic.

Summary

Riding to the nearest town to report the crime, he finds himself accused of the killings and faces a battle to prove his innocence. Western, directed by and starring Ray Milland, with Raymond Burr, Lee Van Cleef, Mary Murphy and Ward Bond.
