| Decent.
The copy of "Hell's Outpost" currently on YouTube is a poor copy...extremely dark and a bit fuzzy. During a few scenes, this causes problems...such as during a fight where you can barely tell who is who! Hopefully you can find a better print.

Tully Gibbs (Rod Cameron) is a newcomer to a small town. He's there to work a tungsten mine and almost immediately comes up against a local bully and thorough jerk, Ben Hodes (John Russell). Hodes would seem willing to do anything to prevent the mine from being successful, as he knows that the place is rich in ore and he wants it all for himself. Time and time again, Hodes responds with various dirty tricks in an attempt to ruin Tully and the other miners. Each time Tully manages to counter, Hodes come in with yet another nasty trick.

In some ways, this story set in modern times seems a lot like a western....with a rich baddie doing everything he can to control everything and everyone. Worth seeing...even though so many of Hodes' behaviors in the film are obviously illegal and couldn't stand up in court...making it less realistic than it could have been.
