Amiable western
2 October 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I have a particular fondness for this movie, which I first saw on Saturday afternoon TV many years ago as a kid. (This was in the paleolithic era when local channels showed movies.) While certainly not inspired film making, it ambles along pleasantly and has a whole slew of old-reliable character actors--Jack LaRue (a little less hot than in "Temple Drake" ten years or so earlier ), Eugene Palette, Lionel Stander, and the ever-delightful Ruth Donnelly, among others. Constance Moore is lovely and brings her rich voice to a number of songs; Jean Lenoir's "Speak to Me of Love," used in so many Hollywood films, is among the most notable, and it's also used in the background score--and as it's a song that I never get tired of, that's fine with me. Bill Elliott has a sweetness that's engaging. I do find the ending somewhat jarring and not in keeping with the rest of the movie.
