Quick Overview

Starring Bill Elliott, Iris Meredith, Dub Taylor, Ray Bennett, Francis Walker

Directed by Joseph H. Lewis



Print: black/white

Runtime: 59 min.

Genre: western

Print Quality: B



Powder Kilgore (Ray Bennett as Raphael Bennett) kills freighter Jeff

Cameron (Edward LeSaint) and the latter's daughter, "Spunky" (Iris

Meredith), sends for gunfighter Wild Bill Saunders (Bill Elliott, in another

of his more than 195 films in which he was never, not once, billed as

William 'Wild Bill' Elliott.) Bill finds that few men care to buck the Kilgore

gang, and he gets consent from Governor Dawson (Don Beddoe) to form

a state ranger's organization out of gunmen now in prison, the men to be

pardoned if they prove themselves worthy. (A plot line used at least six

times by writer/director Robert Emmett Tansey elsewhere in a ten year

period.) Bill whips a Kilgore henchman, Lightning Barlow (Francis Walker),

who is offering "Spunky" protection in return for a half-share in her

freighting business. Bill jails Barlow and other Kilgore gang members

when he and his "rangers" foil an attempted gold-shipment holdup.

"Spunky" and her helper Cannonball (Dub Taylor) stumble on Kilgore's

hideout and are taken prisoner. Bill rescues them, but Kilgore and his

henchman surround the hideout.
