Filmed at majestic Lone Pine, CA, this fine B-Western features Tim Holt and sidekick Richard Martin helping an elderly miner, Jason Robards Sr., with an obstinate wagon-wheel. But the two friends become instant suspects when the miner is found murdered for the map to his claim. Although she is attracted to Tim, even the dead man's pretty niece (Nan Leslie) believes in his guilt. But by using a bit of subterfuge, Holt and Martin break out of jail and are soon able to unmask the real culprits. It should come as no surprise that Holt and leading lady Nan Leslie look comfortable together; Guns of Hate was the third of six Westerns they would make together.
