They refuse to tell McNally anything, and are imprisoned. When the War ends, McNally visits them and asks them to tell him from whom they got their information, but unfortunately, they don't know who they are. Tuscarora is on his way to Rio Lobo, Texas where he grew up. McNally then tells them that if they should ever come across them again, to contact him through a friend of his who is a Sheriff in Texas.

In about as close to a swipe as possible from 1940's "Kit Carson" with Jon Hall, and no accident since George Bruce wrote both, frontier scout Jim Stockton agrees to lead a wagon trail to Mexico-owned California, but is not aware that Mexico has declared war on the U.S., or that General Torena has formed an alliance with Chief Taztay. While the audience is waiting for some actor they ever heard of to show up besides Jim Davis, Taztay attacks the wagon train but is driven off. Jim follows and encounters Mexican-army Lieutenant Ruiz and they duel sword (Ruiz) against firearm (Stockton) and Stockton wins while setting up the line in "The Enforcers" about a dummy who brings a knife to a gun fight. Good loser Ruiz tells Stockton about the war. The wagon train arrives at Monterey as General Torena's forces attack the garrison. Outnumbered, Commander Kimball agrees to let Stockton dynamite the fort rather than allow it to fall to the Mexicans. Turns out to be a good plan as the loud explosions demoralize the Mexican army troops and they scatter hasta la vista. Jim rewards himself for a job well done by marrying wagon train passenger Consuela.

MGM's first feature film in Cinecolor is also their only film in which a horse played a dual role. The original story and screenplay by Jeanne Bartlett, based on an "incident told by Lt. Marvin Park, USNR" features an all-male cast, aside from the horse that played Bess, begins with a young boy whose father has left him a thoroughbred mare and an ambition to establish a stock farm. The boy is inducted into the Navy Seabees and is prevented from rushing to the side of his beloved Bess when she dies of pneumonia, and he is left with an antagonistic attitude. Later, on a remote island in the Pacific under Japanese bombardment, he saves a stricken horse he finds in the jungle and it becomes a beloved mascot of the CB company. And returns the favor by saving the boy's life.
