The Younger brothers are the good guys.
5 March 2006 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

When this western was made, there were good results at the box office if you used the name of notorious outlaws. At the same time the strict moral code would not allow them to be shown as outlaws and come out well, so you ended up having films like this one were the Younger brothers are the good guys. In spite of that it is a mildly entertaining western, also it was in color, which was unusual in 1949 for a western of this category. They have to keep out of trouble to get their pardon, but there is an ex Pinkerton detective who got crippled in trying to pursue them in the past, so by all means he wants to see them back in jail. There is no relation of what happens here with the real story of the Youngers.
