Review by cliff richardson (posted on 30-Aug-2007)

John Wayne plays "Rocklin", and is on his way for a forman's job with Red Cardell. The townsfolk in the community are covering secrets. JW seems no to know that Red was murdered. He rides in with a distant relative, her aunt and a crabby old stage diver, "Gabby Hayes". Paul Fix, and Ward Bond also star in this film. I own a copy of the film and enjoy watchng it over and over. I feel it is as well made film as there is. There is mystery, drama, fist fights, and gun duels enough to satisfy most all Western movie fans.
