About this movie

Guard Larry Delong (Scott) normally rides shotgun on the stagecoach to Deepwater, but when he's tricked into leaving his post, outlaws rob the stage. Held as a prisoner, Delong discovers that Pinto (Bronson) and his gang robbed the stage as a distraction to lure the law out of Deepwater so they can rob the casino. Delong frees himself and rides to warn the town, but he's mistaken him for one of the outlaws. Now, caught between the wary townspeople and the real outlaws riding in, Delong has only moments to stop the casino heist.

I really wish they were able to tell this story in a way that didn't involve a lot of inner dialogue from Randolph Scott's character, but overall this is still a decent Western. If you look at it from a different genre, this could have made a pretty good mystery as well, but instead this is presented as a kind of thriller-ish standoff film with a light touch of comedy. The storytelling is put together well and it ends with a nice payoff at the end.
