This B Western is quite interesting. The direction by Charles Marquis Warren is enlightened.
The film begins with the escape of a prisoner with the complicity of a woman. This woman is potentially one of the 4 saloon girls including Coleen Gray and Angie Dickinson. The answer is actually revealed at the end of the film. The villain is played by Paul Richards with his "Black Whip".
A short B film, above the average. The Black Whip was one of the first "Regalscope" film, a label for 20th Century Fox's B movies shot in widescreen (films who were not entitled to the luxury of Cinemascope) and generally in black and white.
