From Back Cover:

A Riveting Western Tale Of Family, Honor, And Betrayal!

This engaging adventure received a nomination for Best Written American Western from the Writers Guild of America for writers Charles G. Booth and Winston Miller.

When the commanding officer of an outpost (Robert Warwick) is wrongly accused of criminal behavior and is forced to resign, his two songs (Victor Mature and Glenn Langan) attempt to prove his innocence, but with very different methods: One approaches suspects aggressively, while the other is more subtle and methodical. As they struggle to restore their father's dignity, their actions threaten to splinter the family - unless the real traitor is discovered - in a rousing Wild West film that will make a valued classic addition to any DVD collection.

My Comments:

For being a Victor Mature movie AND an old western, this is shockingly good. It's probably more 3.5 stars than 4, but considering how surprised I was at the quality of the film, I'll bump it up.
