    Plot Summary
    Odd little Western that gets off to a snappy start when a man (Matt Dow) is mistaken as a train robber. After the town's sheriff shoots the kid he's riding with, Dow clears his name and ends up as the new sheriff. He romances a Swedish woman and settles in to a peaceful life only to find that the boy has a few secrets of his own.

    Goofs
    Errors in geography
    In the soundtrack in Spanish --in Spain distribution, at least-- the Swensons are throughout referred to as Swiss people, and their country of origin as Switzerland.


    Revealing mistakes
    When Mr. Swenson falls off his buckboard, he lands on a rectangular patch of ground obviously prepared in advance for the stunt.
