her husband had told her of it's location before he died, she is the only one that knows where it had been hidden.
She says her husband had taken part in a train robbery some years ago, he and two others had hidden the gold, but
only he had returned.
'Lane' has two comrades from the civil war waiting for him in 'Liberty' Texas, 'Grady' (Rod Taylor) and 'Jesse' (Ben Johnson)
along with three others they'd roped in for the job, their reward would be a share of $50,000 if successful
The seven set out from 'Liberty' to recover the gold, trouble is, there were 7 others involved in the train-robbery that have a
vested interest in collecting their share, they ride with 13 gunman and are following, it's a 5-day ride.
But, who is the lone rider played by 'Ricardo Montalban' who is never very far away on the trail ?
'Lane' and his are in for a fight if they are to get 'Mrs Lowe' and the gold safely back to civilisation, the odds are against them
will they all live long enough to enjoy the rewards ?
Must admit, i thought i'd seen all the 'John Wayne' westerns filmed in colour....this is the first time i've seen this one, noticed
it on the Amazon U.S site, this the first time the film has become available on the Blu-ray format.
This is an enjoyable 'John Wayne' western that includes several fire-fight sequences, well worth a viewing......
Though a little grainy at times the picture quality is pretty good overall.
Also among the cast, Pop-Star 'Bobby Vinton' as 'Ben Young' and 'Christopher George' as 'Calhoun'

We will not give pause to those customers who complain about some Western movie as "too slow", "not having enough action", or "too boring"!
The Wild West was in fact, where LIFE WAS SLOW!
Get over it.
The much admired cowboys, gunfighters, ranchers, farmers, and colorful cast of real-life characters, did NOT live during the age of the internet, thank God.
We have much to learn from them. They were patient people by today's standards, all of them. They sat on their horses and waited for the next stagecoach passing (highwaymen); they labored long, hard hours in the heat of the day! (without making a run to the nearest MacDonalds to quench their lusty appetites).
This most wonderful WESTERN, THE TRAIN ROBBERS, places the "viewer" (that means YOU) back into that time, when time itself almost STOOD STILL. The movie opens with the wind blowing across the desert range; gunfighters are awaiting the next train that seems to never arrive (it does!).
You can feel the heat, the blinding sun in your eyes, and taste the blowing dust in your mouth!
Why chase after movies that only gaurantee action every second, to appease your too-short attention span?
If you want to know what the West was all about, you will PURCHASE THE TRAIN ROBBERS WITHOUT DELAY!!!
John Wayne is still at his best here -- and so is Ben Johnson (remember Chris Calloway in SHANE??) - another CLASSIC WESTERN GEM!!! Bravo, Hollywood -- you did it again! We owe you a big thankyou for bringing the old wild west back to life again and again and again!!!!
