Marvin Black (Hayes), a desperado, otherwise a mild, hunch-backed storekeeper known as 'Matt the Mute', is determined to gain control of Peyote Pass by murdering the owner of the Half-Way House saloon and buying the property from his niece (Vaughn). Wayne, speaking his few lines with the dry tone and slow inflection which was to be his trademark as a star, puts matters right and blows the blackhat to smithereens with his own dynamite. (Poor sound recording on the print under review, from the UCLA Film Archive.) JPy.
