Movie Info

Thirty years before Arizona achieves statehood, scam artist James Addison Reavis (Vincent Price) cooks up an elaborate scheme to claim the territory as his own. Reavis convinces Mexican immigrant Pepito (Vladimir Sokoloff) that his daughter is the heir to a barony of land granted by Spain, and then departs for years of patient efforts to create a false paper trail. He returns years later to claim the now-grown heir, Sofia (Ellen Drew), as his wife, but will his plan withstand scrutiny?

    It's a pretty far fetched story, but it is said to be based on a real story, which is really incredible. This movie is dramatic, romantic, exciting, and humorous. I loved Price in this movie.

    somewhat exaggerated account of the notorious conman who used forged spanish land grants and even an orphaned girl to try to gain control of a large part of arizona territory. pretty interesting tale of the wild and woolly days of the old west http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/James_Reavis

    Interesting because it's based on a true story. Sam Fuller delivers one his calmest pictures.
