A solid post-Civil War Western from Scott-Brown Productions. Although the end of the conflict has left bitterness over the loss of their family property in the South, Randy puts past rivalries aside by joining the building of the Santa Fe railroad, while his siblings seek revenge on the Yankees by taking up with the shady characters sabotaging the route's westward progress. An episodic affair, akin to a road movie on rails, this makes up for somewhat routine character conflict with a string of well-mounted set pieces (locomotive chases, nocturnal shoot-outs, saloon fisticuffs). With the star in suitably steadfast form, it's hard to feel short-changed.
