Review

Our Score
Veteran director George Sherman, who'd handled John Wayne and Gene Autry in his B-movie days, brings his eye for environment and sureness of touch to this lively, if unsurprising, western. Hired by Carl Benton Reid to find his missing brother (Eduard Franz), Jock Mahoney (still four years away from assuming Tarzan's loincloth) struts through northern Mexico with admirable purpose, countering the threat posed by Reid's grasping partner, Gilbert Roland (who stands to assume sole control of their business if Mahoney fails), with square-jawed efficiency.

Summary

A tough-talking gunslinger is hired to find a missing man, a quest which leads him headlong into a series of deadly encounters as he hunts the kidnappers responsible for abducting him. Western, starring Jock Mahoney, Linda Cristal, Gilbert Roland and Lorne Greene.
