Fine 50's western.

An emissary from Abe Lincoln is sent to the Sioux Indians with a peace treaty and a gift of $130,000 in Gold.

The emissary is killed in a hold up and replaced by Brock Marsh (Gary Merrill) who is helping the South to steal the money and keep the Civil War going. Brock arrives in town and starts his plan in motion.

Wandra Hendrix is Ruth Lawrence, a young woman who discovers that Marsh isn't what he says he is and this of course puts her life in danger.

There are a lot of twists and turns in this film and director Ray Nazarro handles it all very well. The action is hot and heavy and the cast handles their roles very well. it is odd to see Merrill in this kind of role, but he is very good.

Noah Beery, Jr. is "Gimpy" Joe Woods and he adds a lot of depth and change to a typical western character. This is included in the Mill Creek "7 Western Showdown" collection. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!
