Storyline

Retiring Sheriff Horne goes after the Sawyer brothers who have robbed a bank in town. The outlaw brothers count on the fact they grew up together with Horne and hope to get a break from him. However, during a shootout at a farm in the hills, Horne kills one of the brothers and captures the other, Reese. After they accidentally lose their horses during a scuffle, they travel on foot toward the stagecoach depot. All this time, Reese is taunting Horne and warns him that his father, Ross Sawyer, will soon rescue him. Indeed, Ross Sawyer goes after the sheriff to rescue his remaining son. Anticipating such a move, the town's mayor and the judge hire a paid gunfighter in need of money to kill Ross Sawyer on sight. The sheriff and his prisoner take the stagecoach to the stagecoach depot. The depot is run by the Parkers who are in debt and risk losing their business. Therefore, they are receptive to the secret financial deal offered by the prisoner and promise to help him escape the sheriff's... Written by nufs68

Stage to Thunder Rock was an enjoyable B-western I just watched on Netflix streaming
19 August 2012 | by tavmSee all my reviews

The main reason I watched this obscure western just now on Netflix streaming was because since I've been reviewing movies and TV appearances of various cast members of the original "Dallas" in chronological order since mid-June when the new one on TNT premiered, I wanted to follow them to the letter so it got me now to 1964 when the second Digger Barnes-Keenan Wynn-appeared here as the father of a couple of adult sons who were involved in a robbery and had also once taken in a now-sheriff (Barry Sullivan) as a youngster who's now got one of those sons in handcuffs having killed the other one. This was quite a compelling B-oater with notable players like Lon Chaney, Jr., Marilyn Maxwell, and-since I always like to cite whenever a player from my favorite movie, It's a Wonderful Life, is in something else-Angentina Brunetti as the American Indian, Sarita. Oh, and I just found out another "Dallas" connection: Katherine Wentworth herself, Morgan Brittany-who, as a pre-teen here, was credited by her real name, Suzanne Cupito-played a blind girl named Sandy Swope. So on that note, I consider Stage to Thunder Rock well worth a look.
