Radio Times Review

Glenn Ford is branded a coward after surviving the massacre at the Alamo, but proves himself a hero fighting Victor Jory's band of rampaging renegades. This vigorous western has a rather perfunctory script, but director Budd Boetticher and cameraman Russell Metty stage the action scenes with some real imagination, while Julie Adams is a forceful leading lady. Both Ford and Boetticher made much better westerns later on in their careers, though this was the only one they made together.

The MovieDB Overview   (tap to view)

During the war for Texas independence, one man leaves the Alamo before the end (chosen by lot to help others' families) but is too late to accomplish his mission, and is branded a coward. Since he cannot now expose a gang of turncoats, he infiltrates them instead. Can he save a wagon train of refugees from Wade's Guerillas?
