A Lucky Find
10 January 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is not the usual clichéd western. There are no singing cowboys, no range wars, no trick riding. This is not a great movie, but of its era, it is pretty good.

(Don't miss the animated Monogram logo at the beginning of the movie. I had not seen it before in its art-deco-y futuristic glory.)

An orphaned baby changes the townsfolk of a rough mining town--all men--and some lives are changed forever. A little bit later, gold is found in the area, and people change even more, and not always for the good.

This is not the movie that will change your life, but I think you will remember it.
