Our Score
A straightforward yet satisfying Randolph Scott western, in which the stone-faced one sets out after three marauding bank robbers, all of whom are in disguise as respectable townsfolk, making Scott's job a little difficult. This is gripping stuff from director Andre De Toth, who formed a working relationship with Scott that preceded the star's remarkable series of westerns with better-known director Budd Boetticher. These De Toth horse operas were screened as co-features, often with a minor musical or thick-ear thriller (this one partnered the original Dragnet on its release), and provided satisfactory, value-for-money programming. The production company, Transcona Enterprises, was owned by Judy Garland and her then husband Sid Luft, who made this western as part of the A Star Is Born deal with Warner Bros.

Summary

A professional manhunter searches for three murderous train robbers who have taken cover in a backwoods town, but is unable to identify the killers among the community's residents. Meanwhile, the fugitives are aware of his arrival, and tensions begin to rise. Western, starring Randolph Scott, Dolores Dorn and Ernest Borgnine.
