During the Civil War, Union army captain Randolph Scott ventures deep into Confederate territory to carry out a dangerous assignment to create a safe route of passage to California for stagecoaches filled with gold. Complicating matters is the blossoming romance between Scott and Karen Steele (wife of director Budd Boetticher) and conflicts between Southerners eager to see Scott's mission fail. With Michael Dante, Virginia Mayo. 72 min. Widescreen (Enhanced); Soundtrack: English Dolby Digital mono.
