This fine low-budget western (director Sturges' first) has a band of treasure seekers looking for a wagon train full of gold that had been buried years before somewhere in Death Valley. Of course, the closer the group gets to the gold, the higher the tension among them gets until several

members of the party are killed. When a vicious sandstorm kicks up, the remaining treasure hunters scatter, but the winds reveal the location of the gold. Raines and Scott nab the treasure and then Scott, who is wanted for murder, nobly rides to town to give himself up. Black singer White provides

some fine blues numbers and folk songs, accompanying himself on the guitar in his inimitable way.

Coming Soon

Because it's never too early to plan Thursday night... two months from now.
