Philbrook is a US marshal in 1864 who, with the help of his tough wife, Kovack, fights Indians and an outlaw gang in order to get a gold shipment from Montana to the Union troops in the East. The local sheriff is in cahoots with the bandits and arranges the kidnaping of Kovack. Philbrook kills the outlaws and rescues his wife, her mettle through it all deepening his love for her. Rock 'n' roller Duane Eddy, who had a 1958 smash hit, "Rebel Rouser," plays a deputy marshal and also sings the title tune.
During World War II a tugboat captain falls in love with an immigrant girl, living in a British coastal town. He meets her through a system in which the key to her apartment is passed on to him by the previous lover, also a tugboat captain, when the latter knows death awaits him in the high seas.
Brewster owns a ranch but needs $500 to pay off Meyer, a cattle baron. Coincidentally, that is just the amount of the reward Meyer is offering for the capture of the title beast. Brewster's son Hartleben catches the animal but wants to keep it himself. Enter Montgomery as the ranch foreman (and Brewster's suitor) to settle everything. It's a nice story, told well by director Springsteen. Though the theme is an old one, he doesn't resort to much cliche. There's also some nice footage of wild horses edited in. The film was written by veteran western serial director Beebe. The innocence of the film was a refreshing change from the many psychopathic westerns that were cropping up in the late 1950s.
Three years ago, two young scientists teamed up to save New York City from an roach-borne epidemic that was killing thousands of children. Their miracle of genetic engineering was the Judas Breed, an insect whose enzimes proved deadly to the disease-carrying roaches. However, their creation has come back to haunt them, altering the balance of nature and tipping the scales in favor of the insects. The thing created in the lab has changed, and now, out there in the city it has begun to mimic the most dangerous predator of all---humans.
