Don't Sign That Deed
29 September 2007 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Better than average programmer. Good action, classic plot and personable leading lady (Polly Rowles). College girl Rowles inherits spread in ranching country with three college friends. Naturally everybody's looking to take advantage of these greenhorns, even Gene when he finds out they want to graze root-eating sheep instead of less destructive beeves. Complications fly thick and fast and maybe you can follow the twists better than I could. But it doesn't really matter because the appeal of these cowboy quickies lies elsewhere than in the logic of the plots. Some good scenery, hard riding, and the great Tom London and George Chesbro in featured parts. Highlights include scaring the girls until one decides to shoot, singing the meanness out of Chesbro (a nifty little scene), and the classic title tune. It may not be High Noon, but for me, it's a darn entertaining 60 minutes.
