One of over a hundred Columbia features, mostly Westerns, sold to Hygo Television Films in the 1950s, who marketed them under the name of Gail Pictures; opening credits were redesigned, with some titles misspelled, the credit order of the players rearranged, some names misspelled, and new end titles attached, thus eliminating any evidence of their Columbia roots. Apparently, the original material was not retained in most of the cases, and the films have survived, even in the Sony library, only with these haphazardly created replacement opening and end credits.

Sheriff Buck Gordon:
[addressing the church congregation after becoming recently elected sheriff]
I represent the law of man. The law of God is the law of man, but that law has been abused. I've done many things in this town. I was born here. I went to school here. I fought and played with a lot of you fellas since we were kids together, and what I got to say isn't to my liking.

Buck Jones sets the stage from the get go with, "I represent the law of man. The law of God is the law of man, but that law has been abused" He has no less than John Wayne in his sights. And the Duke has gorgeous 'Million Dollar Legs' Ziegfeld Girl, Susan Fleming in his sights. But the big show is between Dad Turner, played by Will Walling and the stately Edward LeSaint in the cattle rustling war. Now the 'all time meanest villain' Harry Woods may have a hand in this, go figure. Buck Jones and John Wayne play great together in this early western that can't be missed.
