Description by OLDIES.com:
A ruthless outlaw escapes from jail, goes on the lam and plans one final robbery. Action-packed western stars Joel McCrea ("Sullivan's Travels"), Virginia Mayo ("The Secret Life of Walter Mitty") and Oscar-winner Dorothy Malone ("Written on the Wind," TV's "Peyton Place" and "Rich Man, Poor Man").
Though not acknowledged by contemporary reviewers, COLORADO TERRITORY is a westernized remake of the 1941 crime drama HIGH SIERRA. Raoul Walsh, director of the earlier film, returns to helm the remake, doing a grand job on both occasions. Joel McCrea stars in the Humphrey Bogart role, playing a veteran outlaw who hopes to pull off one last, spectacular heist. Virginia Mayo portrays the Ida Lupino counterpart, a "bad" dance-hall girl who proves to be the only person who genuinely cares about McCrea's well-being. As in the earlier film, the climax finds McCrea making a futile bid for escape in the mountains, with tragic consequences. HIGH SIERRA was good for at least one more remake, the 1955 Jack Palance-Shelley Winters starrer I DIED A THOUSAND TIMES.
