Great Classic Western!
9 October 2004 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a Western story not like the average picture we have seen over the years, it had a different message with an ending that is true to what life is all about, happiness and sadness! Joel McCrea(Wes McQueen),"Wichita Town",'59 TV Series, had his share of bad luck and wanted desperately to start a new life and forget the past and its bad memories. However, Wes got caught up in situations that tried to prevent him from becoming a happily married man with children. Virginia Mayo,(Colorado Carson),"The Girl From Jones Beach",'49, tried to give him affection along with Dorothy Malone,"Basic Instinct",'92,who offered him an entirely different life. The picture will keep you guessing just how Wes will eventually find a true HAPPINESS!
