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.

Wayne Morris - a good time
16 July 2014 | by (Brazil) – See all my reviews

A nostalgic B westerns but that has survived time and quality. Wayne Morris is very well and Alan Hale steals the show in the role of villain. One detail that you can not pass up is the presence of Lola Albright, beautiful, wonderful. The 50's were rich in Westerns that since the second half of the 40s were being produced on a large scale. Some actors like Wayne Morris occupied important place in movies usually simple and predictable final script, but very pleased that a young audience. Came on his trail, then Rory Calhoun, Dale Robertson, Audie Murphy, Randolph Scott, Joel McCrea, Robert Mitchum, Fred MacMurray, Jock Mahoney and others. The film is very nice with a very good photograph, a real gem of the 50s.
