I don't understand.

Hmm...I just saw this for the first time on the Turner Classic Movie network. It was late at night and I'm starting to wonder if it was over my head or if perhaps I was just really tired.

TCM's description of the film is that an outlaw assumes the identity of a sheriff whom he has ambushed. What I saw was kind of the opposite. A lawman trails a bad guy named Raven into the desert but the bad guy gets the upper hand and steals the lawman's horse and water. The water gets spilled and Raven comes across an oasis. He ignores the words "bad water" which has been scratched into a nearby rock. Poor ol' Raven gets sick and bites the dust.

Anyway, the lawman rides into some town and pretends he is the infamously dangerous outlaw Raven. He attempts to use his new stature to clean up the town and force religion upon the clueless townfolk. Personally, I can see why this is an unknown film. "Gun Law" didn't have anything to make it worth seeing. 1/10
