Surprisingly pleasant western. Script is real treat.
2 May 2002 | by (Brooklyn NY) – See all my reviews

What stands out about this Western is the intricate plot -- a father and son disagree about (a) the son's decision to leave the family ranch to become a peace officer; and (b) the issue of taking the law into one's own hands. At the same time, the wife (Nan Leslie, rather stiff, but OK) of the local outlaw (Steve Brodie, who does his usually excellent job) is becoming more and more disillusioned with her abusive husband (and tries to flee him) and in love with the son (Tim Holt), and finds herself obligated to skillfully lie to keep Brodie and Holt from killing each other. Most of her actions are misinterpreted, and she is wrongfully thought of shielding her husband. But everything is cleared up in the happy ending. When watching the movie, keep your attention on the wife and her conflicting problems and actions and the reactions of others. One of the best "B" westerns.
