It has been a while since I've seen this movies, but it is unforgettable even after so long. It is your typical bad guy turns good type plot with Ladd and Russell as the school teacher that wins his heart in the end excellent in their roles. Stanley Clements also stars as the disbanded jockey who has way to many vices and personal problems. Ladd wants to use him to pay off his gambling debts with no regard whatsoever for his personal welfare. Russell changes all that and all is well that ends well and we all need a happy ending every now and then and this movie supplies. I don't believe the movie has ever been released on DVD or even VHS. If anyone knows where I could find this excellent movie please let me know. I would love to see it again and relive the wonderful feeling that it gave me when I first saw it.
