Quotes

Frank Jennings: Any of the old bunch still around?
Lon Tuttle: Not many. Fred Salter is in jail for cattle rustling. Sammy Page and Doc Wrightmire got themselves hung for horse stealing. And the last I heard of Pete Kincaid, he was down in Indian country for his health. He got a sudden attack of lead poisoning running away from a posse. That leaves me and Buck and Slim Harris.
Frank Jennings: Things must be pretty quiet around here.

User Reviews

Hot tempered lawyer, used his fists and gun more than the book.
2 April 2006 | by tmwestSee all my reviews

Al Jennings is an unusual interesting western. Jennings was a lawyer, but a hot tempered one who would not think twice of a fistfight in a courtroom when he felt he or his family was insulted. His father was a judge who could not accept Al's behavior. Jennings ends up fighting with a powerful man who kills his brother, and after that he ends up robbing trains. Who suffers with that is the beautiful Gale Storm who wanted to marry Jennings. Dan Duryea, who plays Jennings was so good at being a bad guy that most of his roles were just that. Here he has more of a chance to be different, first because(in the film) Al was not such a bad guy, and second because he is the main character. The colors are bright and nice, the film is entertaining with many good action scenes. Ray Nazarro, the director was an expert in westerns, he directed many of the Charles Starret-Durango Kid films.
