If you've seen RIDE THE HIGH COUNTRY, you'll recognize the source of Cohen and Shryack's flabby screenplay. Kennedy is back in the little town of Progress, and Mitchum, the local marshal, doesn't like it one bit. He has run up against Kennedy before, and, knowing the guy is bad news,

Mitchum he warns mayor Balsam. Up for re-election, Balsam doesn't want to rile the populace, so he retires Mitchum and replaces him with Peabody, a bumbling deputy. Nevertheless, Mitchum begins his own investigation of Kennedy's intentions. Kennedy is running with a new gang, but when that

cut-throat cadre want to kill Mitchum (they are planning a huge robbery and fear that Mitchum will thwart them), Kennedy puts his foot down. He has a grudging admiration for his old nemesis. Kennedy and Mitchum join forces to defeat the gang, headed by David Carradine. Fowley is sweet as an old

hermit who brings Kennedy and Mitchum back to town after the two have beaten each other to a pulp. Nettleton is Mitchum's pal, a boarding house owner with a heart of gold-plate. In the end, Balsam offers Mitchum his former job, but Mitchum declines, realizing that it is time to change careers.

John Carradine is seen briefly as an aged conductor aboard the train that is the target for the gang. Director Kennedy does his best to overcome the flat jokes and the trite situation, but he is defeated by the weak script.
