Aging ex-marshal Steve Judd is hired by a bank to transport a gold shipment through dangerous territory. He hires an old partner, Gil Westrum, and his young protege Heck to assist him. Steve doesn't know, however, that Gil and Heck plan to steal the gold, with or without Steve's help. On the trail, the three get involved in a young woman's desire to escape first from her father, then from her fiance and his dangerously psychotic brothers.

"14.12. Perinteisemmät lännenelokuvat ovat jääneet omalla kohdallani hyvin vähälle huomiolle ja asia tuskin tulee muuttumaan tulevaisuudessa. Onneksi vähemmän perinteisiä länkkäreitä riittää. Peckinpahin toinen ohjaus on selkeä irtiotto perinteestä, muttei varsinaisesti vielä ravistele koko genreä kuten myöhempi tuotantonsa. Sinänsä ihan leppoisaa katsoa kun sedät ja nuoriso ratsastaa hienoissa maisemissa ja välillä jotain lyödään turpaan tai kusetetaan. Hirtehistä hu"

TCM’s Essentials Vol 2: Another 52 Must See Movies (52 movies items)

"“I think it’s the most moving, the most lyrical, of all Peckinpah westerns. Somehow he’s able to face women and death . He’s pushing it away in some way in his later films, but he’s grasping it here. It’s unusual in focusing on two old guys. And it’s very funny. Joel McCrea had a very strong sense of who he was and what he could play, and that kind of integrity comes through in his characterizations.” - Molly Haskell “Joel McCrea and Randolph Scott both made a definite decisio"

Slant's 100 Best Westerns of All Time (100 movies items)

"This early Sam Peckinpah effort is a subtle introduction to the fascinating moral complexity that would go on to fuel his best work. Two aging ex-lawmen, Steve Judd (Joel McCrea) and Gil Westrum (Randolph Scott), take a job transporting gold back to a town bank from a mining camp up in the nearby Sierra Nevada hills. They bring along an eager young apprentice, Heck Longtree (Ron Starr), whose entanglement with a local farmer’s daughter (Mariette Hartley) leads to a confrontation that results i"

"9.4. 2019 Two old cowboys encounter lots of different kind of problems while trying to transport gold through dangerous territory. A young and unpredictable man joins them and instantly starts causing troubles when the group meets a beautiful girl who is about to get married. Peckinpah's film is actually a very basic western but it's easy to appreciate how the director carefully develops the atmosphere and handles all the basic themes like greed, betrayal, and romance. Gorgeous landscapes serve"

"Varhais-Peckinpah alkaa löysästi, lällysti, miten vaan, kuin mikä vain western tusinasta. Heti kun päästään ryyppäämisen pariin (hääkohtaus), elokuva laittaa aivan uudet kierrokset silmään. Kaikki Peckinpahin tuotantoa halkovat teemat ovat läsnä: miesten väliset yhteisöt ja ystävyydet, ihmisen yhtäaikainen kunniallisuus ja petollisuus, lihalliset himot ja ahneus. Köyhällä oli kuollessaan päällään vain ylpeyden vaatteet, jotka eivät pahemmin lämmittäneet, kuten eräs"

"26.1. DVD Alku on lupaavan peckinpahlainen väläys muuttuvasta Lännestä. Muutoin eka puolisko on harmillisen tyypillistä amerikan länkkäriä ja paikoin pahalla tyhjäkäynnillä. Sitten alkaakin tapahtua. Suurinpana käännekohtana erittäin vahva hääkohtaus, joka näyttääkin taas Peckinpahin halun ja taidon kuvata ihmisen erikoisia moraalikäsityksiä, jotka normaali-ihmiselle ovat tietty silkkaa sadismia. Lopputaistelu pohjineen on myös erinomainen."
