Storyline

When Yance Carter, Andy and Bart, professional killers, murder his father, 13-year-old Johnny Yorke is adopted by Thad Kring, owner of a traveling minstrel show, featuring Sam Cooper as his ace sharpshooter. For the next ten years, while working in the show and becoming an ace sharpshooter with Cooper as his mentor, the adult Johnny maintains a relentless search for Yance, whom he knows only as a big man with a missing finger and a high piercing laugh. In an attempt to find a restraining influence on the revenge-mad Johnny, Thad hires pretty Ann Walker to be Johnny's assistant in his sharp-shooting act, but Johnny's desire for revenge precludes marriage. When Yance, Andy and Bart hold up a train on which the minstrel troupe is traveling, Johnny gives pursuit, despite the pleadings of Ann and Thad. He trails the killers for several months without success, eventually winding up in Silver Springs, where the ministrel show is playing. Johnny agrees to perform his act with the troupe and, ...

Above average "revenge" western
10 March 2000 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

A good cast and story with tight direction lift this oater above the average. Morris is the young boy, grown, searching for the murderer of his father, while travelling with a variety show. Hale is great as the baddie, and a very young Albright is, as always, easy on the eyes. This is one of the few pictures Morris received top billing in following his return from WWII, and he also produced. Of course the ending is predictable, but it's fun getting there.
