Release Date: May 28, 1960 (USA) | Length: 111 min | Genre: Crime, Western | Certificate: Approved

Note: There are a few actors that I couldn’t identify because they had generic roles and no other film credits. There is a chance that Walter Torrence is the basketball player because there are a few athletes in the film, like Rafer Johnson and Trusse Norris (both of whom also went to UCLA).
