Well paced and low budgeted Western , nicely starred by James Arness , and competently directed by Andrew V. McLagen
Simple and plain Western with usual ingredients . This oater has a good cast and enough action , but in low budget. It deals with a gang of crooks planning a robbing at the Palace City Bank that goes wrong. The tough thieves : Robert J. Wilke , Don Megowan , James Arness and his faithless girlfriend : Angie Dickinson , take his share of the cash and ride to their cabin . They escape but James Arness is injured and left by his colleagues who run away with the loot . Then a posse arrives and they take him prisoner. Later on , being sentenced , condemned and once completed sentence he is released . Like an avenging angel he terrorized the west in search of the killers who had stolen his name , money and his woman. After that , James Arness seeks vengeance , and finally locates them in Gunther Wells where rules a brave sheriff , Emile Meyer, and his deputy , Harry Carey Jr. At the end rivals contend for each other in their opposing characters .
Entertaining Western including action , thrills , go riding , shot'em up and a peculiar love story between James Arness and Angie Dickinson . An agreeable and slight tale , almost rudimentary , though full of cliches , as the script lines too often settle for crude routine ; however , packing some surprises . It contains an atmospheric and evocative cinematography in black and white by William H Clothier who photographed several John Wayne films , as well as evocative score by Henry Vars . This oater is an acceptable and passable western that relies heavily on ordinary situations : treason, fights , shootouts , pursuits and final confrontation . Thrilling and enjoyable flick deals with a wounded robber who betrayed by his double-crossing partners , serving long time in prison and being released , subsequently seeking "vendetta", this issue to be a common plot in the subgenre Spaghetti Western of the sixties . Here stands out a pretty good main cast and support cast formed by notorious actors . James Arness plays efficiently as Remington, a gunslinger of formidable physical and the regular baddie Robert J. Wilke who is awesome as Matt Rankin . Angie Dickinson plays a saloon girl , as usual ,receiving introducing credit , being her first credited movie . Other important secondaries appearing are the followings : Emile Meyer ,Frank Fenton, Don Megowan , Pedro González Gonzalez and Harry Carey Jr , John Ford's regular actor .
The motion picture was professionally directed by Andrew V McLagen , though shot in very short budget and in nine days .This was the first Western movie of many directed by Andrew and his film debut . He directed John Wayne in several films, including the successful Undefeated , Hellfighters and Chisum . He was expert on all kinds of genres , as Westerns as Chisum , Shenandoah , McLintock , The Blue and Gray , The way west , Bandolero, undefeated , Cahill Marshall , Rare breed . And he directed 96 episodes of Gunsmoke reuníting again James Arness. He also made Wartime movies as Dirty Dozen next mission , Sea wolves , Wild Geese, The Devil Brigade , Breakthrough , among others. Rating 6/10. The movie will appeal to Western buffs .
