Synopsis by Hans J. Wollstein
That "Peaceable Man," William "Wild Bill" Elliott, once again plays Wild Bill Hickock in this fine B-Western from Columbia Pictures. This time, sidekick Cannonball (Dub Taylor) discovers that two old enemies, swindlers Cord Crowley (Bradley Page) and Jeff Adams (Frank LaRue), are fooling the good folks of Lodestone into believing that they are solid citizens. When the banker, Jason Perry (John Dilson), refuses to heed Wild Bill's warning, the peaceable man is forced to show his hand. Adams is the first to blink and when confronted with his criminal record, the veteran crook commits suicide. Crowley proves a tougher nut to crack, but, as always, Wild Bill gets his man in the end. Taking a breather from the action, Dub Taylor performs his own "The West Gets Under My Skin," while suffering the consequences of a flee-ridden cowhide west.
