As a favour for the late Jeremy Scott, who had saved his life while in prison, Roy Koster comes to Silvertown, where he clears the name of the wrongly accused man.
In their second collaboration director Baldanello and actor Robert Woods weren't aiming as high as in Black Jack. But they delivered at least solid SW fare in this routine genre entry, which still is one of Baldanello's better westerns.
