inflexible, starchy
5 May 2003 | by (Pocono Summit, PA) – See all my reviews

I always like to be polite, even when panning something. With that in mind, let's say that this isn't awful, although it's just a notch above. The characters are extremely stiff and unnatural - an example of a 30s western at it's least believable. So the acting and writing each deserve blame for this effort. Ray begins the movie by getting some reward money, with which he heads on vacation. His path crosses with a bandit, fleeing from having robbed old Bob, packed with money enroute to paying off his mortgage. The thief is able to switch horses with - thereby incriminating - Ray, although he eventually convinces the sheriff of his innocence. The greedy criminal's interest is renewed by the prospect of payment of cash life insurance proceeds as part of Bob's fake funeral. And - oh yeah - Bob's daughter, Virginia, provides a romantic target for Ray. The premise is interesting enough. But the execution is terribly contrived.
