Storyline

Charles Alderson and his wife settle in the Wyoming Territory, and form a lasting friendship with Thomas Jefferson "Windy" Gibson. Alderson's wife dies in childbirth, leaving him with an infant daughter, who he sends to Europe for an education. During the years in which she is abroad, Alderson becomes a wealthy cattle baron. The daughter, Karen, returns to Wyoming soon after it has been admitted to statehood. She finds that much of the land her father has considered as his own is now open to homesteaders, and that hostilities have broken out between the two factions. Alderson's foreman, Glenn Forrester, a former lawyer with whom Karen falls in love, warns Alderson against using violence in dealing with the homesteaders. Duke Lassiter, a smooth operator dealing in cattle rustling, sets himself up as a spokesman for the homesteaders and uses their fight with Alderson to further his own interests. When Lassister murders Windy, Alderson hires a gang of outlaws to war on the homesteaders. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

A fine, action packed, fast-paced Western.
13 June 2000 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

Done in the tradition of "Red River (1946) this is the story of the Land Baron Vs the small ranchers, but this time from the Land Baron's point of view. The fine supporting cast features Maria Ouspenskaya, movie buffs will recall her as Malvea the gypsy in many classic horror films. The direction is smooth and Elliott is in top form as the anti-hero. The fist-fight scene gives proof that Elliott is no "Mr. Nice Guy" as he bites, thumbs, gouges, knees and kicks his way to victory. The ending is predictable, but the fun is in getting there. This is a good one!
