Carson is standing in front of the door of his office thumbing through a deck of playing cards. The next shot shows him leaning against the doorpost with his arms folded and no playing cards. The office door then opens and as the deputy appears, Carson is once again standing and thumbing through the deck. See more »
I rather wonder what the audience would have made of this went it was originally released.Given that the main audience of these type of films would be children how would they have dealt with the confused and almost unintelligible plot,the lack of action,the funereal pace and the downbeat ending.I am grateful for the other review to confirm that i was not going mad and that the story was totally confusing.Tim McCoy was clearly a big name at one time but by the time this film was made,one of 8 in that year,he was clearly showing his age.The last 20 minutes with the lynching ,the vengeance of the brother and his virtual suicide in the gun fight at the finale are more reminiscent of "The Ox Bow Incident" than a standard B movie.Also i would mention that the brother appears to be badly wounded in the 3rd killing but the only problem it seems is the hole it made in his jacket.Not a film worth viewing.
