Ambush at Tomahawk Gap is a characteristically brutal program western from Columbia's Wallace MacDonald unit. John Hodiak, John Derek, David Brian and Ray Teal play ex-convicts who ride into a Godforsaken western town. They're on the lookout for the loot that they buried from their last big "job." Before we are treated to the requisite "thieves fall out" scene, Tomahawk Gap is besieged by Apaches. The survivor of the carnage is allowed the usual ride into the sunset with Indian maiden Mary Eleana Marques. Featured in the supporting cast of Ambush at Tomahawk Gap are such old reliable sagebrush standbys as Trevor Bardette, John Doucette and Percy Helton.
