This movie had plenty of action and a great plot with much better acting than a typical B western. Although the audience is aware of who the bad guys are almost right from the start, Bill (Elliott) Stockton has to figure it out and it's a pretty well played out story. Andy Devine is great as usual. He was always one of my favorite sidekicks because he was funny, but still a pretty useful guy in a fight despite his round physique. As always, Grant Withers and Roy Barcroft are the bad guys. And as always, they are terrific in the roles. The unfortunate love affair between the bad guy and the senorita makes for an interesting subplot and also provides an ironic ending. This is a top notch Bill Elliott movie.
