Movie Info

Cowboy Rocklin (John Wayne) rides into a dusty western township where he's been promised work on a ranch. But when he finds that his future boss has been gunned down, he's forced to find work elsewhere. Despite his sexist attitudes, Rocklin charms the fiery Arly (Ella Raines) with his cavalier bravado and lands a job at her family's ranch. There, however, he learns that Judge Garvey (Ward Bond) was involved in his original employer's murder and is now trying to steal the dead man's land.

    the duke puts in a solid performance as almost always, there's some light comedy but the plot's a bit disjointed

    Just a really likable movie with great characters and a unique mystery element that westerns don't always have. John Wayne presents such a great character, being a lot more of a traditional nice guy than a tough talking bad boy. For not being a huge movie, it's shot extremely well and it's not really dated. No corny characters or goofy costumes, it's all pretty perfect. I love the romance between John Wayne and Ella Raines, it has chemistry to say the least.

    The movie comes along at a good pace, Ella Raines makes it worthwhile. Not one of John Wayne's best work.

    Standard oater with nothing to distinguish it from the dozens of other run of the mill westerns that Wayne made throughout his career.
