as far as entertainment is concerned, it sure delivers.
30 August 2006 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

If I had to choose a western as a model of the highest qualities that were present in the 50's and were lost after the 60's it would be "The Outriders". It is not one of the greatest, but as far as entertainment is concerned, it sure delivers. It has a great typical western story about three Confederate prisoners who escape (McCrea, Barry Sullivan and James Whitmore) and end up with some Quantrill's followers commanded by Jeff Corey. Corey sends them on a mission to join a caravan which is leaving Santa Fe, which is carrying gold, and whose leader is the notorious silent movie actor Ramon Novarro. They will follow the caravan up to Cow Creek where it will be bushwhacked. The only woman present in the caravan is the beautiful Arlene Dahl. There are two great moments in the film: 1)They cross a river with a tremendous current with a raft tied at one side and using the current to get to the other. 2) there is a dance with the men drunk, and Arlene as the only woman tries to dance with them all and ends up dancing with McCrea, very sensual scenes. If you like westerns, don't miss this one.
