Standard Columbia quickie
1 June 2003 | by westerner357See all my reviews

Standard quickie put out by Columbia, filmed on the usual locations at Columbia ranch and in the southern California foothills.

This involves 3 convicts who escape from Yuma prison led by Philip Carey, who go back to the town of Warbow to search for loot hidden by Carey's brother 11 years before. Carey takes his ex-girlfriends family hostage so her husband can go into town and retrieve his brother. That way, Carey doesn't have to face the sheriff who already has warning he's escaped.

Pretty boring stuff with the usual clichés, this is nothing more than one of those many B westerns, disguised as an A western that Columbia put out in the 50s.

The only reason I watched it is because Brian Garfield in his book "Western Films" didn't think it was so bad. I did.

3 out of 10 for being standard
