Storyline

A group of copper miners, Southern veterans, are terrorized by local rebel-haters, led by deputy Lane Travis. The miners ask stage sharpshooter Johnny Carter to help them, under the impression that he is the legendary Colonel Desmond. It seems they're wrong; but Johnny's show comes to Coppertown and Johnny romances lovely gambler Lisa Roselle, whom the miners believe is at the center of their troubles.

Traditional western, colorful, entertaining and fast moving.
4 May 2002 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

The fifties were a time of transition for the western genre. Quite a few were using stories that could have taken place anywhere, others kept to the tradition. Copper Canyon is a traditional western, but where no money was spared in the production, with great colors and top actors. Ray Milland is an entertainer (he shows his marksmanship on stage),that comes to a town to help confederates which are being discriminated after the war. Hedy Lamarr is the woman he falls for, very pretty, and during the film you keep wandering if she's not going back to being Delilah again and betray Milland. Macdonald Carey who used to be the leading actor in many westerns, is in a supporting role as the bad guy. This is a light, pleasant entertaining film.
