Another 100 per cent score for the screen's premier Western star! A cyclonic drama of Love, laughter and slaughter in a land where blue steel Blints, bullets whine, and Death rides on dangerous trails.


When Butch Taggart escapes prison, the Marshal sends Lightning Morgan to find him and his hidden gold. He finds the map to the gold on Taggart's boot. Joe Laikon and his men are also after the gold and they overpower Morgan, get the map, and head for the treasure. But Morgan and Tod Grant are soon on their trail
