Dakota Incident (Republic 1956, Dale Robertson, Linda Darnell)



Dale Robertson plays bank robber John Banner, who decides to go straight. Pitching up in small town Christian Flats, he offers to drive the stagecoach to Laramie, despite the last one returning with the driver and passengers killed by the Cheyenne.

On board is a mix of the good and the bad, including bank teller John Carter (John Lund), suspected of one of Banner’s robberies, showgirl Amy Clarke (Linda Darnell) and Indian-loving Senator Blakely (Ward Bond). Ambushed by the Cheyenne, the group must fight for their lives in Lewis R Foster’s western, which is enhanced by the spectacular photography of Ernest Haller.
