Limited but charming old western
7 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

I chanced upon this film one rainy afternoon and was pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed it.

It is the usual western tale of the good guy tackling the bad and greedy land grabber. The plot is simple and holds few surprises but nonetheless it holds a certain charm. The lead actor is no acting superstar but is amiable enough and the rest of the cast is surprisingly good for what was probably a B movie.

The action rolls along at a pleasing pace leaving little time for fillers except for the occasional musical interlude.

This film will almost certainly only be enjoyed by fans of old westerns, as it is dated. However if you fancy a bit of old fashioned celluloid history then this is nice way to pass the time.
