Scott is Major Ransome Callicut, an undercover Government agent who is sent in to find a group of insurrectionists who want California to secede and become a slave state.
Posing as a school teacher, he arrives in California and discover a huge cache of weapons as well as several plots of assassination. His two aides are "Monk" Walker" played by Dick Wesson and Olaf Swenson played by Alan Hale, Jr.
These two provide the comic relief and it blends in well. There are plenty of gunfights an intrigue to keep every western fans attention. Scott does his usual good job in bringing this film to life.
Felix Feist directed from a John Twist screenplay. Recommended!
