Warner Brothers reuse of footage from the film 'Dodge City' includes the crowd scenes and the shoot-out scenes seen at the start .Also some of the bar room brawl including the scene where the stuntman is thrown through the window. A sheriff's notice has the name of Wade Hatton on it, the sheriff played by Errol Flynn in the earlier film. A part of Flynn's body is actually seen as he pins a sheriff's badge on his belt.

Excellent western! Gordon MacRae plays the son of the sheriff ( Jack Holt) who gets imprisoned for a murder which he didn't commit. While in jail, his friend ( Rory Calhoun) gives him a gun so that he can escape--which he does. He enlists the help of Julie London as he tries to clear his name & find the real killer. Holt was a big star in the 20's- he starred in a lot of westerns & was always able to find work thru the 50's. MacRae & Calhoun were especially good--it's easy to see how they both became big stars. MacRae of course, went on to star in several musicals. Calhoun stuck mainly to westerns & he was great in them. London didn't have a lot to do, but she did it well.
