Well-made western
29 April 2019 | by PanamintSee all my reviews

Roy Barcroft (in top form as a land swindler) is one of a trio of first rate stars of the western genre who are featured in this movie.. He, Alan Lane and Phyllis Coates were among the best western performers of the era

Scenes are professionally set up, well-directed and photographed. In other words, this may be a modestly budgeted western but it is not shoddy in any way.

You won't find a sidekick, only an old crotchety uncle. He isn't goofy and he doesn't sing, yodel or dip snuff- he is just "crotchety". The story is formulaic but the script is lean and all the violence is within context. This film is worth your viewing time if you like westerns.
