    Solid if unspectacular Randolph Scott western about cattleman Scott going up against local gold mine interests in British Columbia, taking on the town boss who wants to run the cattleman out of town. George ``Gabby'' Hayes plays, what else, a crusty cantankerous old miner in his final film appearance. Most interesting on this film is that color print of this film were long lost due to the the film being made on the little used color process Cinecolor, which combined two different color strips (Orange/Red and Cyan/Blue) and only black and white prints existed. After locating some of the missing elements, the two drips were digitally cleaned up, frame-by-frame, and then recombined into a new master. So even though this film isn't a real western classic, it's always fun to get to see a "lost" film that was thought never to be seen again.

    Good if slightly unorignal movie here. Randolph Scott plays an enterprising cowboy bringing cattle into gold country. But the unscrupulous mayor of the small town he rides into doesnt like to be upstaged! Not a bad time waster.

    Frontier western with a very ordinary storyline. A good one for Randolph Scott fans though.
