User Reviews

Agreeable minor western with classy personnel.
11 August 2004 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

At the end of the long run as an MGM contract director, Sam Wood with GOODBYE MR. CHIPS and NIGHT AT THE OPERA on his C.V., found himself doing a B western. That must have been a shock but he had a first rate cast, Dietrich's musician and Ernst Lubitsch's camera man along, so he got stuck into what proved to be an entertaining minor production moved away from the expected cowboy action - note the shift from dramatic to comedy at the end of the big shoot out.

Drifters McMurray, Dekker (doing dumb comic) and Roland battle villain Schildkraut, with Patricia Morrison for female interest. We could have done without the moppet but the mounting is expert and the cast comfortably superior to their material.
