| A power void....and someone is sure to try to fill it.
This western from Republic has a very good cast. While few A-list names, a lot of familiar and accomplished actors appear in it, including Brian Donlevy, Rod Cameron, Forrest Tucker, Ella Raines, Paul Fix, Chill Wills, and J. Carrol Naish. Sadly, however, the print I found on YouTube was severely yellowed and the color is less than stellar.

When the story begins, the tough boss of the Hatchet Ranch has died unexpectedly. Now there's a new boss, a lady, and the future of the place is in doubt...especially since Bide Marriner (Donlevy) vows to take what he wants! Can the ranchhands of Hatchet Ranch manage to hold onto what they've worked for all these years? Or, is it time for everyone to tear the ranch apart and take the cattle?

This was a difficult movie to watch only because so many people seemed to have their own agenda and figuring out who were the good guys wasn't too easy! Still, with so many good B-list actors (far more than you'd usually expect in a film), you can't go wrong with this one.
