Canyon City Sheriff Webb is unable to stop the gang of ‘El Diablo’. This information of this fact, is conveyed to the gang by Victor the son of the sheriff, who is connected to the bandits. Jeff Benson defends the town with his marksmanship during yet another criminal attack. He alerts the sheriff to his true identity as a federal agent. He asks the sheriff to agree to let him act as escort to a train load of gold bound for the Mexican government. ‘EI Diablo’, incited by Victor’s message, but not knowing the plan of Jeff, thinks that only his father and a few others are the only men escorting the convoy and prepares everything for an assault. When ‘El Diablo’ attempts to rob the gold train a battle between the bandits and a large escort of soldiers hidden on the train leads to the elimination of all the gang, some of which die and some are brought to justice. Jeff decides to remain in Canyon City at the side of Pamela, the daughter Sheriff's who he has fallen in love with.

  2. No problems with the link here. It works just fine as is.

    A couple of months ago, I watched this film again and actually enjoyed the experience!
    I had tried to watch it a couple of times before, many years ago, but never made it through the whole thing.
    Funny how one's perspective on a film can change over the years!
    It is not a "hidden gem" or classic of the genre by any stretch of the imagination; but, it isn't as awful as I remembered.
