[first lines]
Lou Banks: Well, that does it, Sam.
Sam Wellman: Well, according to my figures, we should have about five hundred head bottled up in the canyon. How'd you make out with the Bannion stock?
Jack Marlin: They got away with about half his herd. We can pick up the rest whenever we want 'em without any trouble.
Sam Wellman: Now listen, I don't want any killings. Understand?
Jack Marlin: Now who said anything about killings?
Sam Wellman: Well, I know you. You'd put a slug in your grandmother if she got in your way.

Wilson whips the bad guys .........
30 April 2008 | by ca-corbettSee all my reviews

Whip Wilson stars in another so-so entry in his short-lived B-western series. The Buck Jones lookalike comes to town to help his friend Jim Bannon who has been the victim of recent rustling activity.

Wilson was never a huge cowboy star, this film being one example of why that was the case. He was at best an average cowboy star, being overshadowed in this one by his co-stars --which include Jim Bannon, Fuzzy Knight and TV's Lois Lane, Phyllis Coates.

I personally prefer the low budget series that featured Lash Larue and Fuzzy St. John. This one was slow and predictable --- recommended for Whip Wilson fans only.
