      Audience Member After a man helps his partner escape after being falsely accused, the two of them head west with a treasure map. Some memorable stunt work highlights this otherwise ordinary B-rated western. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member good B movie western Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member This John Wayne western is not among his best. The direction is disjointed and the screenplay lacks interest. Although it does have more of a plot than most similar westerns from the 1930's, it lack polish and excitement.
