| Crooked lawyer with nefarious scheme
I think there will forever be interesting wills drawn by people who might want to amuse themselves in the afterlife by seeing th heirs run around doing strange things to get the inheritance. The deceased in Land Of The Open Range had a Ponderosa like spread, but in his younger days was quite the hellraiser. So on his death he said that his spread would be divided into sections for homesteading and to be eligible you had to have a prison record.

As you might imagine that is of concern to law enforcement which is in the persons of Tim Holt, Ray Whitley, and Lee White. But there's more here than meets the eye. Roy Barcroft who was the lawyer has one real interesting scheme in mind and more I will not say.

Strange wills in films is a genre all its own. But I give points in originality for this film. And besides that it's got a good quota of action as Tim Holt films always do.
