    Plot Summary
    Pioneers are surging westward to the Cherokee Strip,
    eager to conquer a new frontier, while wagonmasters Milt Dawson (Sam Flint)
    and his son, John (John Wayne) watch with interest.
    The latter is not ready to try his hand at homesteading and prefers
    to leading outfits safely to their destination.
    While John is leading the Miller-Myers party of settlers,
    Milt returns to a nearby town to witness the dubious advantgaes of civilization.
    Some of the pioneers he helped bring west, like Parson Shaw (Allan Cavan)
    and Tom Lewis (Murdock MacQuarrie), are struggling to bring religion
    and an honest work ethic to the territory, while others, l
    ike saloon proprietor Ace Holmes (Warner Richmond),
    open the town to murder and corruption.
    The honest citizens ask Milt to become the town's first sheriff.
    He declines but when a citizen is murdered, Milt confronts Holmes
    and is shot down in cold blood. John has brought the latest group
    of settlers through, averting a battle with a hungry gang of outlaws
    by befriending the leader, Kit (Alan Bridge),and leaving behind
    some food and supplies.
    John is eager to see Hannah Lewis (Muriel Evans), daughter of Tom,
    but his homecoming is ruined by the news of his father's death.
    John takes the sheriff's job and Holmes, intent on controlling the town,
    hires a gang of cutthroats led by Norton (Glenn Strange.)
    John escapes a Norton-gang ambush and faces Holmes in a showdown,
    but is struck down from behind. Kit and his now well-fed gang rescues John.
    John deputizes Kit and his men and they confront Holmes and his saloon
    henchies and a gun battle begins, with Johh, Kit and the outlaw deputies
    taking cover in the drainage ditches being dug in the main street.
    Lewis sets fire to Ace's saloon in the hope of smoking out the bar henchies
    but Norton and his gang ride in and set other buildings ablaze as the gunfight rages.
    Kit is killed while saving John's life and the lawful factor finally win the battle
    against the lawless proponents.

  • Hi

    I believe that the third poster was the standard one used for all of his Three Mesquiteer pictures.It certainly features largely in the poster catalogue of a couple of years ago.

    Regards

  • I have it on a very ropey DVD copy along with the other mesquiteers titles and the universal films idols of the crowds, I cover the war, California straight ahead etc.
    Can't wait to see if it looks as good as the other releases so far!
