Did You Know?


When rancher Pete Ferguson is slain, one of his ranch hands is seen fleeing. In the full body shot he is quite portly, but in the shot of him mounting his horse is filmed from the waist down in a (failed) attempt to hide the fact that it is a stuntman mounting the horse in his place. The stuntman is noticeably thinner/more fit and taller. See more »

Not bad, considering it's age
25 August 2003 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

When one reviews a picture, it's important to consider the time frame in which it was produced. In years gone by, we had more simple times, hence more simple plots and so forth. This picture is of interest mainly because it is the only one ever directed by B-movie mogul and theater owner Robert L. Lippert. A few years later, Lippert's company would release "Little Big Horn"(1951) and "Tall Texan"(1953), now considered B-movie classics. This one shows how it all began for Lippert. Sure the story is routine, however it is somewhat redeemed by the fight scene at the conclusion, which was very advanced for it's time. I guess today, if a movie doesn't have a budget of ten gazillion bucks, has so many explosions it gives you shell shock, and enough sex and nudity to turn your gut, it isn't any good, eh? Don't beam me up Scotty, just send me back to the '50s!!
