His father's killer is his lover's brother!
11 June 2000 | by (Bellaire, TX) – See all my reviews

John Wayne turns in a better than journeyman's performance in this Thirties'-style formula western. John Mason, returning home from a long absence, arrives at the time his father is killed in a bank robbery. His best friend's girl takes care of him after being shot, leading to tension between these cowboy movie iconical characters.
