At the close of the Civil War, a group of Confederates steals a million dollars in gold from a Union convoy. The gold is hidden in a cave near Phantom Hill, Texas. After being captured, the group's leader, Duryea, offers to tell where the gold is in exchange for his freedom. Union soldier

Fuller then leads the party in the search for the loot. After an attack by Apache warriors, Duryea escapes by plying two of the soldiers with alcohol, then killing them. He runs off, leaving Fuller, Simcox, and Akins to fend for themselves, weaponless. While Duryea gets both the gold and Fuller's

dance-hall sweetie (Lane), Fuller survives another Indian attack, although Akins dies. Once Fuller and Simcox catch up with Duryea and Lane, the latter throws Fuller a pistol and Duryea is shot. The gold is returned and the happy couple ride off together. Though the plot has the potential to make

a good film, INCIDENT AT PHANTOM HILL never quite makes the grade. Despite some nice action sequences, the direction is relatively lackluster and indifferent. Characters aren't given much motivation and the script never delivers on its promises. The fine camerawork, one of the few notable points

in the film, makes nice use of color and scenery.
