Ronald Reagan quits his job as sheriff of Tombstone (No, he's not Wyatt Earp.) and heads for greener pastures in an attempt to start a new calmer life for himself and his brothers, only to find out that his new home is run with an iron hand, both figuratively and literally, by old foe Preston Foster and his sniveling sons.
A solid studio B-western, this looks like a million bucks in gorgeous Technicolor and has a script that really knows what buttons to push.
One of Reagan's better roles, he strikes all the right notes and is definitely well cast.
This is also a great showcase for up and coming future stars Russell Johnson (the professor on Gilligan's Island) and an almost unrecognizable Dennis Weaver, who really makes the best out of his role as one of Foster's sadistic sons.
The final fist-fight between Reagan and Foster is well staged, exciting, and immensely satisfying.
