An amazingly youthful A.C. Lyles western.
30 November 2012 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

A.C. Lyles made a huge number of 'geezer westerns' in the 1960s. These were low-budget films featuring many older actors--actors that had long passed their prime. It gave these actors work and saved Lyles on his budget. Interestingly, Lyles tended to use the same actors again and again, as he seemed loyal to these folks--particularly the supporting actors. This film stars Rory Calhoun (43) and Virginia Mayo (45) but also had the VERY familiar Lyles actors, Lon Chaney Jr. (59), Richard Arlen (66) and John Agar (45). BUT, unlike the other geezer westerns, there was an unusual injection of youth in the film, as a gang of very young and hot-headed play a prominent part in the film.

The film begins with a gang of young western punks coming into a town and acting like fools. They pick up another member and learn that the leader's father is in a nearby town. And, since this young man had MAJOR daddy issues, he takes the gang to this town in search of revenge against the father that abandoned him. When they get to town, the gang run about acting tough--chasing away the sheriff and running roughshod over everyone. Eventually, they find the father (Rory Calhoun) but he quickly whips these young pups and shows them who's boss. However, a gang of much, much tougher hombres is coming. What's next? See the film and find out for yourself.

My biggest complaint about the film is the character Biff. Again and again and again, he goes off half-cocked and tries to kill their young leader. And, time and again, Biff gets beaten and the problems with Biff continue. Why didn't he just shoot Biff?! Who would be dumb enough to let Biff live AFTER he tries to stab you with a sword?! Huh?! However, despite this silly character, the film is actually pretty good. I liked the complexity of the characters (other than Biff) and the ending was enjoyable. A bit better than a time-passer.
