Trivia

The sub-surface cabin, in Corriganville, is used as the outlaw's hideout, and is the same cabin used in "Fort Apache" for the trading post, and the stagecoach relay station in"Hangman's Knot." See more »

Goofs

Although the film is set in Texas, the opening is a long-shot of the town and the caption reads, "Laredo, Arizona". There is no border town named Laredo in Arizona, and the Rio Grande River does not flow between Arizona and Mexico. See more »

Keeping Tommy Guns From the Mexicans
31 October 2006 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Tim Holt and Richard Martin are border patrol officers and they're working together with Rick Vallin of the Rurales to stop a load of machine guns from getting over the border.

Smuggler Douglas Fowley has found a real great smuggling scheme, the machine guns are in the costumes of a traveling troupe of showgirls. Now you know that Richard Martin is going to be loving working on this case. And one of the girls has her eye on him as well.

Tim is all business as usual and of course the two of them get the job done in the tradition of B westerns.

Not a bad entry for Tim, one of his better ones for RKO.
