Its ok with me. I enjoy all the old westerns. This one was no exception. The technology of moving picture shows was in its infancy but improving year by year. I always enjoy looking int he background of the scenes and noting how things were made in those days. The homes had plank floors and sometimes with large cracks in them. It always amazed me that the outside of the ranch house would look like it was going to fall down but when the inside scene came on it was a different story. The house was furnished lavishly with carpets on the floor and artifacts of all types displayed. This movie was no exception. You will enjoy it if you pay attention to all things in it.

Maybe whoever copied this and then sold it thought that no one would notice because it's an old black and white.
WRONG! It's such a poor copy it looks like it was shot on toilet paper.
Very disappointed in the quality.

A wife worries about her husband. His work requires him to travel far away. The local people don't know what Toby does. His wife Zee sent their children away, she leaves too. Toby decides to reform, so she stays. Their wedding is interrupted by the appearance of strangers in town. They escape by jumping across a chasm. Toby has a new way to get money from a bank. There is some comedy here! The Heath store sells fodder for horses. His old friends drop by to see him. Will he do one more job? The stagecoach is drawn by six horses. The search reveals no loot! Toby sends Billy away.

Toby stops at a small house for victuals. The lonely widow Weeks tells her story. Her late husband mortgaged the farm, and now she may lose it and become homeless.
