Wild Bill Elliott stars in this action-packed post-war B-western. He portrays a peaceable man confronted by corruption and opportunists when he returns to the Lone Star state at the close of the War Between the States. John Carroll and Andy Devine are excellent in key supporting roles here.
Elliott was very good in this one ---- he always excelled as the voice of reason and enforcer of justice in the old west. He wasn't the best of actors,but what he did ,he did well. His fistfights and shootouts here are taut and convincing. I liked Carroll in this one.... he was a charismatic actor here, but never quite reached true stardom.
This is a fun and entertaining B-western and was superior to many other contemporary shoot-em-ups. Enjoy !
