One thing that makes this movie worth seeing
27 November 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is not a remarkable western. The good guy rides a white horse, etc.

However, there is a bizarre moment where the hero hops off that white horse, jumps into some sort of drainage ditch, finds himself a log about 6 feet long, straddles it like a stick horse, and then holding the front of the log to hold the tail end down onto the ditch bottom, he commences to "ski" down the ditch at a brisk pace with 3-point balance! There is no warning this is coming! It's just THERE in the movie! I have never seen anything else like it.

The movie also features a great secret cave with a "secret" back entrance hidden by a swinging cupboard!
