Suppose I told you there were half a dozen warrants out for his arrest right now. One for killing a man out of Silver City, Colorado, eight years ago with a knife. Another for killing four Chiricahua Indians.
Eight years ago? Well, that's ridiculous. The boy couldn't have been more than twelve years old!
You don't judge a rattlesnake by his age. He's a rattler whether he's got one rattle or a dozen.

It must have been difficult for Audie Murphy to perform in front of a camera and it shows. However, although a bit on the stiff side, he does well in his first outing. Of course this is a whitewashed story of BTK but it's enjoyable. It's almost impossible to imagine that the youthful face we see here (approx 25 years old at the time although looking like a teenager) was in the war several years before. The narration doesn't help the picture but there is a lot of action. Audie looks great!
