[addressing potential recruits]
And the answer, men is: we must band together. You, Carter; you, Russell; and every man here that's suffered from the injustice of these gangs. And it's up to us to clean them out. Now my plan is this: every man here will ride a white horse, wear a black shirt and a white scarf. And this way we'll know each other in battle. I'm asking for single men only. Men who'll stick. Who'll join me here?

Brother vs brother as the Duke leads a gang of vigilantes.
Brother versus brother as the Duke leads a gang of white-horse-mounted vigilantes out to destroy every bad guy in the state. His parents murdered by a gang of cattle thieves, his brother taken and raised by the gang, John/the Duke sets out to locate the gang a decade after the event. Exciting action scenes which make up for stilted dialogue, especially from Mary MacLaren as John's Ma. As the row of good guys, black hats and black shirts on their white chargers, thunder across the screen, my thoughts hark back to the days of 17-inch black and white TV sets. In Australia this comes packaged on a cheap DVD with 'Flying Tigers' and 'Hell Town'. The DVD has excellent sound but generally below average picture quality!
