After one too many successful stick-ups of the Carson City stagecoach by the Champagne Bandits, the local banker decides to build a railroad track through town. To do so, he'll need to employ the help of "Silent" Jeff Kincaid (Randolph Scott), the only man who can tunnel through the mountainous region. Unfortunately, Kincaid has more than just the mountains to deal with -- neither the locals nor the Champagne Bandits are happy about the new railway. Read More Read Less

Michael E. Grost Classic Film and Television Inside look at building railroads - from the days in which entertainment was often about science or technology. Aug 8, 2008 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews It was so rousing, visually pleasing and entertaining that I didn't seem to care how worn was the formulaic plot line.

Audience Member Another really good western here. I will recommend it, James Welch, Henderson, Arkansas, July 31, 2023. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 07/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Standard 1950's western. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/03/23 Full Review Audience Member Western extolling the virtues of progress through the railroad vs conservative opposition from a bunch of crooks. Randolph Scott is not playing a typical hero character, but acts like one throughout. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/06/23 Full Review Audience Member good WB technicolor western Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Formulaic, but diverting, oater. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/08/23 Full Review Audience Member Brisk, unabashedly daffy DeToth western makes a fun double feature with MAN IN THE SADDLE or WESTERN UNION. It's available to watch instantly @ Netflix.com 'til 3/1/09. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/20/23 Full Review Read all reviews
