It's just after the Civil War and a railroad is expanding westward. Saloon owner Stewart brings in rifles hidden in whisky barrels and gives them to the Indians to attack the construction crew. He is trying to get the railroad to change it's route and go through his town. Posing as a telegrapher, railroad agent Granger arrives to see if he can stop the railroad's troubles.Written by

At approx. 19:38, the telegraph line was referred to as a telephone line. This was supposed to have taken place shortly after the end of the civil war, which was 1865. The telephone was not invented until 1875 and the first telephone was not installed until 1878. The golden spike connecting east to west was driven in May of 1869 in Promontory, Utah. See more »
Well, that's my hotel over there. It's usually full up, but I can take care of you now that Mr. Holly is changing his room.
Wrong. Holly isn't changing his room. He checked out.
No, he'll be occupying the downstairs rear. You see, I'm also the Oaktown's undertaker. And having my establishment on the premises, well, it saves so many steps.

Very poor Western in every way. Big waste of time.
I see that there are no reviews here so I'll add my two-cents. This was a very poor Western in just about every way. It deserves its 5.0 rating average. I usually like the stars, Jock Mahoney and Peggie Castle. Here they were attractive, anyway. Everything else about the film was cheap, unrealistic, actually embarrassing. Mahoney is known as a stunt man early in his career; here his fistfights were awkwardly staged acrobatic doings. Westerns that have battle-winning ploys at the end of throwing sticks of dynamite or lighting brush fires are a sure sign of a ludicrous movie, and the former was used here. The basic story (the bad guy's plot)seemed pretty thin and unworkable to me.
