Be careful what you ask for ............
Dale Robertson was the star of TV's Tales of Wells Fargo and made a number of westerns of varying quality thru the years. With his amiable,determined demeanor he caused many a bad guy to see the error of his ways. In this film from later in his career, Robertson ends up "saddled" with a railroad won in a poker game.
Robertson takes on the greed, corruption and misunderstanding of the community as he gets the fledgling enterprise off the ground. Diana Hyland appears also in an interesting role , the same year that she appeared in Smoky with Fess Parker.
Dale Robertson always reminded me of Clark Gable, with his likable rogue persona. This is an average film though, with a few above-average performances.
