Goofs

After fighting in the dirt and being shot in the forehead by one of Fay Warren's brothers, Tim Mallory exits Fay's home behind her with dirt stains scraped into his shirt on both shoulders and he is looking generally disheveled after the fight. When we see the pair outside in the next shot, however, Tim's appearance has changed to clean-cut and unblemished, a freshly cleaned and ironed shirt with not a stain or crease to be seen on him.

Worth watching-if only once!

George Macready (as the head villain) was looking seriously too old when this was made. One of those good v bad type of westerns with, in this case, limited acting ability. Not a lengthy film, but for those who enjoy the good guys beating the odds, its not bad TV especially on a wet afternoon.
