Synopsis by Hal Erickson
Produced by Jack Schwarz on behalf of Eagle Lion Studios, Badman's Gold was ultimately released through United Artists. John Carpenter (not the horror-film director) stars as a U.S. marshal, sent westward to stop a series of stagecoach robberies. The villains have been pilfering gold intended for the vaults of the U.S. mint. With the help of a local brother and sister (Troy Tarrell and Alyn Lockwood), John Carpenter tracks down the miscreants. Of interest is the fact that the script for Badman's Gold was co-authored by Alyn Lockwood, the film's heroine. Soon afterward, star John Carpenter would embark upon his own series of self-produced westerns.
