In the movie Ambush at Cimarron Pass from 1958, directed by Jodie Copeland, a cavalry patrol led by Sergeant Matt Blake (played by Scott Brady) is transporting a dangerous prisoner, JamesAgry (played by Roydon Clark), to Fort Huachuca. The journey takes them through the treacherous Cimarron Pass, a dangerous route that's known for its unpredictable weather and notorious outlaw gangs.

The patrol's journey is further complicated by the arrival of a small group of civilians who are also making their way through the pass. Among them is a young woman named Beth (played by Margia Dean) who is searching for her missing husband. The two groups join forces and attempt to navigate the pass together.

Their journey is made even more perilous when they are ambushed by a group of ruthless outlaws led by Turk (played by Clint Eastwood). Turk and his men are after Agry, who they believe to have a valuable treasure map. The sergeant and his men must defend themselves and their prisoners against the outlaws and try to escape the pass alive.

The movie is a classic western tale that showcases rugged landscapes, intense action scenes, and brave heroes defending justice. It features classic western tropes such as Indian attacks, shootouts in saloons, and of course, horseback chases through treacherous terrain.

The actors all deliver solid performances, with Brady portraying a stoic and courageous leader who cares deeply for his men. Eastwood, in one of his earlier roles, is convincingly menacing as the outlaw leader, oozing charm and charisma while also being a ruthless villain.

Although the movie is relatively short (approximately 73 minutes), it packs plenty of action and suspense into its runtime. The climactic battle between the cavalry patrol and the outlaws is particularly thrilling, with some great horseback stunts and well-choreographed gun fights.

In addition to the action, the movie also explores themes such as loyalty, duty, and the pursuit of treasure. While it's not the most profound or nuanced exploration of these themes, it adds some depth to the otherwise straightforward action-packed story.

Overall, Ambush at Cimarron Pass is an entertaining and engaging western that delivers on its promises of action, adventure, and heroism. It's a great example of the classic western genre and a must-watch for fans of the genre or anyone looking for an exciting and well-made movie.
