Better Than Average Matinée Western
6 September 2013 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Happily, this is not strictly a formula western despite the earmarks. Instead it's got some unexpected twists that might surprise the viewer. Plus, of course, Bill Elliott as Wild Bill Hickok, one of the few matinée heroes who could growl, and make you believe it. Then too, there's tubby Dub Taylor as fairly amusing comic relief, and the sculpted Luana Walters as eye candy.

Also, I can't help noticing that Richard Fiske, as the wayward Larry, was one of the few Hollywood actors k.i.a. during WWII. The industry should have commemorated these guys in some fashion.

Anyway, the screenplay contains a pretty good story, where Bill is trying to save Larry from the clutches of bad guy Carew. There may not be much hard riding, or fast shooting, or eye- catching scenery. But it maybe the only matinée where the knock-down drag-out fist fight is between two bad guys! All in all, however, the 60-minutes amounts to generally superior matinée fare.
