Movie Info

This western is set in Australia. It chronicles the adventures of two ruthless desperadoes who attempt to cheat a cattle rancher after they bungle a bank robbery in Sydney. They encounter the rancher as they fled the town. While upon his land, the two begin trying to convince the man and his daughter that one of them is his estranged son. To prove it, the two help them on a cattle drive from the Outback to a watering place. They encounter many travails upon the drive including a brush fire and a stampede. Along the way, they meet up with the Mountie who has been trailing them and the truth is revealed. A gunfight ensues. The one who played the son is wounded, and the other is killed. In the end, the police promise the daughter that the captured crook will serve a lighter sentence because he confessed.more

...despite its brief running time and simplistic plot, the film packs a moderate amount of action into the story.

Some nice shots of the Australian Outback but not much of a story.
