A great old cowboy film!!
11 September 2001 | by (st. pete, fl usa) – See all my reviews

George O'Brien saves the day in this wonderful Zane Gray film. Though time has not been good to this copy(some spots are very choppy) it is still a VERY enjoyable movie.

The story is that the bad guys in the area are trying to run this girl out of town. Seems she has control of land that they need. They run her cattle off cliffs and shoot her men. What is a girl to do?

Then along comes George O'Brien who wants to help her out by shooting the bad guys. This girl will have no violent acts done on her behalf, she says it solves nothing. Will she stick to her beliefs or give in?? Will evil overcome good?? I won't spoil the ending but it is great. If you get the chance, watch it! It'll take you back to Saturday afternoons at the movies when you were a kid. Enjoy the show partners!
