Looking for the silver lining.
26 August 2010 | by See all my reviews

The writer reportedly found the story so complicated he had trouble making the screenplay coherent.It shows,particularly in the first scene ,which does not look at all like a first scene-there's the same problem in Haskin's and O'Brien 's "war path" ,the -in my opinion- better follow-up the same year.These movies were supposed to make this actor a western star but left him a tough guy in thrillers in which he excelled .

Anyway the star of this western is the incredibly attractive Yvonne De Carlo ;every time she appears,you only have eyes for her.And there is a scene where her face is filmed in close shot! A labored western ,with two good chases at the beginning and at the end .If it were not for De Carlo,I would rather recommend "war path".
