The Outriders is sturdy meat for the action fan. Principal motivation of script is a $1 million gold robbery.

Joel McCrea, Barry Sullivan and James Whitmore are Confederate soldiers who escape from the Yankees, join up with a gang of renegade rebel raiders. They are dispatched to New Mexico to figure an angle to lead a wagon train of gold slated for the Yanks into an ambush. They join the train when they help beat off an Indian attack. Before the ambush destination is reached McCrea has fallen for a comely widow (Arlene Dahl).

Roy Rowland’s direction packs a wallop. Some scenes are alive with tingling suspense, such as the crossing of a raging river at high flood.
