Description by OLDIES.com:
The Utah desert is a mighty lonely place, unless you have a fortune in gold. Then bandits and beautiful girls will go out of their way to make your acquaintance.
Clint Walker and Roger Moore trust their sidearms, wits and each other in a rowdy Western loaded with six-shooter action and spectacular vistas. A found fortune in gold nuggets is theirs - if they can brave scorching heat and flying lead long enough to keep it. Then an old pal who comes to their aid puts a price on friendship and demands the loot for himself. But the boys have one more trick up their sleeves.
Director Gordon M. Douglas specializes in comedy and action films, and here he puts the two genres together for a generally successful, well-acted chase drama. Two partners, Jim (Clint Walker) and Shawn (Roger Moore) have had the good fortune to find a gold fortune, but just after their strike, they end up in serious trouble. Word of their newfound status gets out to the wrong people, and before they have any time to cash in their chips and retire, they are running like the wind from a variety of money-grubbing marauders whose only goal in life is to return Jim and Shawn to their original impoverished state. As the chase heads toward a climactic moment, everything builds up to a convenient, if unconvincing conclusion.
