 Joel McCrea nearly always played a westerner with noble intentions, who walked quietly, had a knock-out punch, and was a dead shot.
He was also a fine horseman, second only to stuntman turned actor Ben Johnson, who had been a genuine cowboy as a young man.

Standard fayre western, they're all on a cattle drive, and JMc is trail boss John Cord, with some history. Amongst the supporting players are three actors who wound up in the hit TV series "Rawhide".

Paul Brinegar (Wishbone) - plays Tom Jefferson Jeffrey
Steve Raines (Jim Quince) - plays Dan Quince (uncredited) same surname - cool
Rocky Shahan (Joe Scarlet) - plays Paul Corbo (uncredited)

There is a touching seen when the cowboy who is herd night watchman sits his horse and gently sings "The Streets of Laredo" (the cowboys lament), in tune too.

Not the best film, but not the worst.

Spoiler alert: why do all the women in these 50s westerns have ruby red lipstck, full make up, perfect hair, very clean clothes, and wearing cross-your-heart bras that would have your eye out if you got too close, and they're all a-huntin' a man.

If truth be told, they would look like they'd been dragged through a hedge backwards, and would have horse shit and mud all over their shoes.......just sayin'
