Trivia

Richard Rosson worked on the film as director from the pre-production stage starting December 1941 until early April 1942. After 31 days of shooting, he became ill and was replaced by Richard Thorpe, who received sole onscreen credit, despite working on the film for only two weeks. See more »

Goofs

Although the attacking Indians are supposed to be Apaches, they are wearing the feathered headdresses and war bonnets more typical of those worn by tribes of the Great Plains such as the Sioux, rather than the tribes of the southwestern deserts like the Apaches. The only head gear Apaches usually wore were bandanas. See more »

Managing an Isolated Way Station in the Middle of an Apache Uprising
19 June 2019 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

This film begins with a cowboy by the name of "Tom Folliard" (William Lundigan) having been arrested and detained in a local jail for 90 days waiting for a judge to preside over his case involving an armed robbery committed by his notorious brother "Trigger Bill Folliard" (Lloyd Nolan). Fortunately, when the judge arrives Tom is immediately acquitted and released. However, when he goes back to reclaim his old job of riding shotgun on a stagecoach line he is informed that it has since been filled. That being the case he eagerly accepts an assignment managing a remote stagecoach way station which is nearly abandoned due to the increasing restlessness of the local Apache tribe in the area. But what he doesn't know is that his brother also has plans involving this way station and they don't coincide with his. Likewise, he is ill-prepared for a rivalry between two attractive women by the names of "Rosalie Martinez" (Donna Reed) and "Constance Selden" (Ann Ayars) competing for his affections as well. Now rather than reveal any more I will just say that this way an okay Western film which managed to pass the time easily enough and for that reason I have rated it accordingly.
