This was also the last theatre-released film directed by the prolific Lewis D. Collins, whose early 25-year career was primarily Poverty Row non-westerns in the 30's, a series of Jack Holt action-adventure films for producer Larry Darmour and Columbia (a high water mark relative speaking), and westerns, serials and some musical shorts in the 40s, and nearly all westerns in the 50s. His long-time friend, actor Lyle Talbot, said that Lew Collins was the only man in Hollywood that had less use for horses than he (Talbot) did, so... "naturally we both ended up doing nothing but B-westerns, usually together." Writer Dan Ullman dusts of the old mistaken-identity gimmick in this one as ex-convict Jim Blake is mistaken by the lawful element of an Arizona town as the gunman they had sent for to rid the territory of outlaws and rustlers. When his past eventually catches up to him, he owns up to it, finishes the job that was handed to him, becomes the regular sheriff and finds romance with Gail Sterling. Written by Les Adams See less
