Mr. Dillon, Mr. Dillon, wait, this isn't Gunsmoke. And this isn't Dodge. This yawner is set mostly in Kingdom Come, a one man town literally built on gold. Mr. Dillon's wife and daughter come back to town after being sold for gold, seeking refuge and inheritance. Meanwhile the Central Pacific railroad is seeking passage through the mountains. Will they bypass Kingdom Come? Fortunately yes, although some railroaders are blown to kingdom come. Only the lovely Sarah Polly saves this movie from being a total disaster.
