Storyline

Bent on revenge for the death of his father and the theft of their ranch, young Bill Walton rides into town seeking the aid of his uncle. As he rides into town, he takes a bullet meant for gambler Matt Daggett and across the street lies his uncle, victim of the gambler's gun. Dagget looks on Bill as 'good luck' and nurses him back to health and gives him the job of training "Blue Chip", the fastest quarter horse in the west, for a big race. Bill doesn't know that Dagget plans to fix the race and put his own money on another horse at heavy odds. Quartered at the nearby ranch of John Grant, Bill meets Jerri Marshall, daughter of Bob Marshall, who lost "Blue Chip" to Daggett in a crooked gambling deal. Grant gets mixed up in a stage coach robbery and killing and rides back to the ranch with Daggett henchman Red Roper.

Fine little black & white western from the '50's.
13 February 2008 | by (Groningen, The Netherlands) – See all my reviews

This movie really ain't anything too spectacular but it's a pleasant enough western to watch.

It's a pleasantly slow going movie (which western isn't?) and takes it time to set up things and characters. Granted that it doesn't have the most interesting story or main character but it's all good enough to maintain your interest throughout. It's not a movie that bores, even though not an awful lot is happening. So just don't expect any long big gun fights or anything of that sort. It's a pretty 'innocent' sort of western.

It doesn't have an all too common main story for a western, which is also involving domestic violence and an horse race, among other things. This is a sort of a 'pleasant' change and approach to the genre. It works out original, since the movie starts off as your typical revenge flick but in the end the story has a whole lot more in it. It however on the other hand at times also means that this movie isn't the most interesting the genre has to offer.

Guess it's a sort of a pointless redundant movie to watch but when you do watch it you most likely won't be bored or regret it, especially of course when your a fan of the western genre and western's from the '40's/'50's in particular.

7/10
