| Colorful action western yarn
This western is a solid adventure has plenty of action and romance and cavalry-Indian fighting. Kirk Douglas is the hero of the story as he guides a wagon train west through Indian country. Problems arise as gold-hungry white men offer whiskey to Indians for information about the whereabouts of gold deposits on Sioux land. While guiding the train, Douglas finds time for a dalliance with a pretty Indian maiden, the beautiful Elza Martinelli, but the lust for gold undoes a peace treaty with the Indians and leads to hostilities, with the train racing back to the fort for army protection. Douglas is great as the trail guide and Martinelli is a looker but doesn't seem comfortable with extended dialogue. Walter Matthau, Lon Chaney Jr, Ray Teal and Elisha Cook have key roles and ex-spouse Diana Douglas has a nice part as a marriage-minded widow. Franz Waxman contributes a nice score, a wistful, brooding accompaniment for this quality western.
