      Goofs
      Miscellaneous
      At 26:50 minutes into the film, Randolph Scott is getting beaten up.
      The hits to his face have no sound of impact, and they also look phony,
      like they didn't really connect.

      Revealing mistakes
      During the fight scene in the mine over the gold a partial collapse of the wooden structure
      supporting the roof is caused by the Scott crashing into a column.
      Pieces of the collapsed beams can be seen swinging around from the mine ceiling
      on silver grip chain used to 'saftey'
      and control the special effect collapse instead of falling to the ground.

      Escaped outlaw Forrest Tucker stops a stranger following him. The stranger is Randolph Scott dressed up like a greenhorn. For no good reason, Tucker decides he needs a partner and Scott fits the bill. This is the kind of plot contrivance you just have to accept from a western like this, a programmer if there ever was one. Naturally, Scott isn't who he says he is. He just wanted to fool Tucker into taking him along so he could find where Tucker hid some gold. There's also an evil rancher, George Macready, who has a pretty daughter. The daughter's played by Dorothy Malone. Of course she and Scott fall for one another. It's all serviceable enough but nothing special. If you've seen enough westerns, all of this movie's pieces will seem familiar.

      Still, it's a Randolph Scott western. There are far worse ways to pass the time.
