This little-seen quasi-Western from 1950 stars McDonald Carey as Jim Bowie helping his friends, the Indians, from an army of marauding white men out to steal Indian land for its silver. The action is set well before the Civil War, so it is improper to call this a Western, although on the meager budget this was shot on, there are plenty of classic Western outfits on display throughout. Carey is at his prime here, and makes for a virile and resourceful Bowie. An absolutely stunning and very youthful Maureen O'Hara is his feisty love interest, who initially is all for white folks taking over Indian land. She wears some silly outfits that look like they came from a Roy Rogers flick, but she also gets to wear at least one formal dress that shows off her distinctive assets. She also gets to put on quite a brogue, enough so that you might think you're watching THE QUIET MAN from time to time. All in all, a fun "B" flick of a type now long forgotten.
While this isn't an awful Western, there are clearly deficient aspects
here that prevent greatness. The fight scenes don't thrill. The saloon
brawl is poorly crafted, and nowhere near as funny as intended. The
Comanches are depicted as 'injuns', with whites playing the only
speaking parts. The central love/hate relationship between Carey and
O'Hara is of the screwball comedy variety, but Carey is no Clark Gable.
