Just here for George, but I enjoyed all of it
29 August 2015 | by See all my reviews

I didn't really know what to expect from this movie. I was literally only watching it because of my love for George Reeves in The Adventures of Superman. I was not disappointed, and ended up enjoying it on the whole. I've never watched an old western before (or many westerns at all, really), but it was an entertaining watch, with appealing protagonists, a pretty interesting plot line with schemes, people getting framed, action, etc., and even some great humor. It's sure to entertain for anyone who likes this sort of thing. Despite all the shootings and whatnot, the entire thing has a warm, kid-friendly feel that I assume was more typical of movies from a simpler time. And of course, I enjoyed George as much as ever. He was cute and young and got a decent amount of screen time, and was the same great guy I knew from Superman.

This movie is just under an hour long, so it's not a great time investment. If you're a fan of any actors or of this genre, I recommend this film.
