worth seeing, unusual story, good actors, and a lot of action.
This western has a good story by Louis Lantz, it is not an average western story, it is quite unusual. The main characters are a blind man, Ned Tallon (Peter Graves), and two other men who are trying to help him, his brother Johnny Tallon (Dane Clark) and Ben Shelby (Ben Johnson). Shelby wants to kill Johnny Tallon whom he blames for his brother's death. The three of them have as enemies the Navajos and Dave Parker and his men. There is a lot of action and up to the last part the film goes surprisingly well considering the low production budget. The color process, Cinecolor was used in some B western and is far inferior to Technicolor. In the last part it becomes too sentimental, and also the final shootout is not on the same level as the rest of the film. But it is worth seeing.
