California: "Lily Bishop joins a wagon train to California, led by Michael Fabian and Johnnny Trumbo, but news of the Gold Rush scatters the train. When Johnny and Michael finally arrive, Lily is rich from her saloon and storekeeper (former slaver) Pharaoh Coffin is bleeding the miners dry. But worse troubles are ahead: California is inching toward statehood, and certain people want to make it their private empire"--Written by Rod Crawford in IMDB, viewed Oct. 29, 2012.
The Cimarron Kid: After being falsely accused of a payroll heist, the Kid heads for the high country, where he joins the outlaw Dalton gang. When the Daltons are decimated during a daring daylight bank robbery, the Kid takes over what is left of the gang and hides out at a local ranch. Here he is reformed by the love of rancher's daughter Carrie Roberts, but not so reformed that he doesn't embark upon one last robbery.
The man from the Alamo: A soldier delegated to escape the Alamo, the famous besieged fort, is labeled a coward and a deserter, and instead of defending himself, he sets out to gain revenge on a band of renegades.
