Two rival gangs do battle with each other in a small town. The drunken sheriff isn't courageous enough to try and stop them but his newly arrived deputy is. The deputy manages to arrest most of the outlaws but transferring them to the fort and justice is another matter.


The SW also had a heart for drunks, and Anthony Ghidra didn't waste the chance to throw in another memorable performance. Apart from that the rest of Tequila Joe is not too remarkable, even if there was a basic approach for more. // by Stanton
