Murphy plays an ex-Quantrill's (Quantrell) Raider who's released from jail with buddy Cooper to be deputized as Arizona Rangers in order to hunt down the remnant of the gang, rumored to he hiding out in a town "neer dee border" in the words of the loose-lipped saloon dancer. The goons are found hiding in an Indian mission.

NOT A VERY GOOD WESTERN...!
25 December 2018 | by masonfiskSee all my reviews

Another Audie Murphy Western that comes up short in all aspects of production. Colonel Quantrill & his raiders are attacking & robbing towns at the end of the Civil War so the Union army is dispatched to quell his siege. Murphy plays one of the raiders who's caught & given a chance to be deputized & corral the stragglers who've sent up camp at an Indian village. Considering this effort came out in 1965 when most Westerns began to shift their focus to more timely & intimate subjects, this feels like a throwback to the westerns from the 40's & 50's which wasn't a good thing. The blandness of the plot, the uninspired casting & the lackluster direction continually place this film's prospects in the demerit column. The only smile I got was seeing Buster Crabbe, the original Flash Gordon & Buck Rogers from the serials of the 1930's, playing the Union commander who gives Murphy a new lease on life. Forgettable for a reason, skip it!
