KIRKUS REVIEW

A behind the scenes war waged on a western ranch, a battle of dull wit unscrupulous love. A Marine hero, wounded, jilted, turns rancher, consoled by the virtuous and faithful sister. Complications develop in the form of the jilting fiances, a supposedly dashing colonel to round out the foursome, an escaped prisoner of war, a jewel thief, the F.B.I., an hospitable marrying ranch cook. Despite multiplicity of plot threads, the story is often dull, repetitious -- etilted dialogue -- superficial characterization -- nothing to redeem it. Straight rental drip --and not even good at that.
