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'

Ann Margaret leads the men, whom she hired, to journey with her and recover the cache'. Along the way, they encounter a group of rough riders out to steal it from them or get there before they do.
The movie looks fabulous on HD Blu-ray! I recently played this on my UHD 55" 4k VIZIO and Sony Blu-ray player. The picture and sound were far superior to the previous DVD release.
I am really enjoying these westerns making a comeback on the HD format. Most have never looked as good as they do now, or sound.
There are some special features here as well that make this Blu-ray worth having.

"The Train Robbers" is not Waynes best western, it is no "Searchers," no "Hondo," no "Rio Bravo" or "El Dorado" and no "Shootist." It is simply an enjoyable western with some good action, beautiful scenery and a great supporting cast. Co-starring with the Duke is Ann-Margret as the woman who hires Wayne and his group of cohorts to recover some gold stolen by her deceased husband. One forgets how absolutely beautiful Ann-Margret was until one sees her in her prime. (I had the pleasure of briefly meeting her recently and mentioned to her that she co-starred with 2 of my favorites: Wayne in "The Train Robbers" and Elvis in "Viva Las Vegas." She seemed pleased and said "Bless their hearts.") Also co-starring is the great Rod Taylor, an actor I greatly admired from 2 of the favorite films of my childhood: Hitchcock's "The Birds" and George Pal's "The Time Machine." (See Taylor currently in "Inglourious Basterds." Apparently Tarentino idolized him as well.) The film also co-stars the terrific Ben Johnson, a man seemingly incapable of giving a bad performance. Ricardo Montalban is also good as a mysterious stranger following the group.
For a Warner Bros. DVD, this disc shockingly has a couple special features: a nice little featurette featuring the stuntmen who worked on this film reminiscing about working with Wayne on this film, a vintage featurette on the production of this film and trailers of other Wayne films on Warner Bros. DVDs. The picture and sound quality of this disc are very good.
As stated, if you want to sit back and relax with an enjoyable Wayne western, this is for you. It is no "Rio Bravo," (my favorite Wayne western,) but then again, what is?
