The duo ultimately stumbles upon John Tunstall's (Paul Cavanagh) ranch, and the fun begins. All is well until a member of the sheriff's posse murders John. Billy swears revenge for the death of his friend and goes on a bloody rampage. Although Billy eventually reforms for his sweetheart, Tunstall's niece Nita (Betta St. John), he continues to be pursued by the new sheriff, Pat, who reluctantly chases his old pal. The movie is full of exciting and suspenseful moments that will captivate the audience. Pat ultimately catches up with his old friend in a classic movie shoot-out. William Castle directs the seventy-two minute film.
