Sheriff Dean disarms the riff-raff !
19 July 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This shoot-em-up from baritone-voiced Eddie Dean was entertaining and one of his better efforts.As a singing lawman, Eddie moves to tame and disarm a town that has been way too rowdy to suit him.

This film benefits from Dean's easy-going charm, good action sequences and a notable supporting cast ----- look for several familiar faces here. I was not crazy about the songs...... but I guess they were fairly decent.

Eddie Dean films were usually pretty routine, but this one is above-average. The mix of plot, casting and action make this one worth watching again & again!
