This movie was filmed in two Arizona locations: a ghost town called Swansea, and Lake Havasu City shortly after the London Bridge was rebuilt there.
The scenes filmed in the ghost town are supposedly to 'train' the gang to take over the town they intend to rob, but all the gang does is run around shooting machine guns at dilapidated buildings and setting off explosives. At a minimum, the ghost town scenes are interesting.
The scenes in Havasu are not as extensive as I hoped: The actual scenes are limited to just a few streets, and you don't get a clear idea of what the city looked like in the mid-60's.
These 24 double-sided DVDs contain 100 different public domain movies. Most of them were produced in the 1930s and 1940s, the prime time for Westerns. Those made before the 1960s are mostly in monochrome, more modern movies are in color. Some of these movies are duplicated in other collections. There are singing cowboys: Gene Autry, Tex Ritter, Roy Rogers. John Wayne is well known for his action movies. The others are: Bob Steele, Guy Madison, Johnny Mack Brown, and others. These films are mostly banned from broadcast TV today but were shown during the 1950s and 1960s. These films were produced on a lower budget with a running time of about an hour. You can compare them to current television drama shows.
They represent a past culture. Then most ranches and farms and stores were owner-operated small businesses; few national chains or franchises. Some of these stories are set in the 19th century, others have modern settings with automobiles, telephones, and radios. Those set in the 1860s use arms produced after the 1870s! The right to keep and bear arms was well-recognized when these films were made. Many of the stories tell of the struggle for economic independence (like the small businesses against the big corporate chains).

Poor quality filming. Looked like a home made movie at times.Published 11 months ago by Ullrich Deinert
This film had the worst musical score of any film I have ever seen. Rather than complementing the action in the film, it detracted from it. Read morePublished 15 months ago by surly
