Movie Info

This western stars Sterling Hayden as a man who innocently tends to the needs of a mysterious stranger. When it turns out that the stranger was part of a notorious gang of mercenaries, Hayden is condemned as a conspirator and sent to Hellgate Prison in New Mexico. He earns a pardon thanks to his courage and medical expertise during an epidemic. Hellgate was one of a handful of ambitious 1950s projects from the otherwise cost-conscious Lippert Studios.

Obscure but decent western with many familiar faces going through their paces.

Super Reviewer

Good story, nicely paced and well acted. Ward Bond is particularly good. Fine score, it does well on a below average budget. It’s nothing extraordinary but it always held my interest.
