very interesting western, good entertainement
29 April 2002 | by tmwestSee all my reviews

This western is very special, specially when you realize it was made not many years after it takes place. It shows soldiers that fought in world war one,looking for a new place to live, and going to New Mexico where they are not welcomed by the bad guys. Anyhow, two cowboys decide to help them. They arrive driving cars, and one guy has a motorcycle with a side car. The first thing the cowboys tell them is to get rid of the cars and find horses and wagons.
