good unpredictable story, torrid love scenes, neglected western
What made me see this film was an article I read about "the woman in the western", by Blake Lucas in the book "The Western Reader", where it is one of the films mentioned. Colleen Miller is a girl who is going to town with her father Walter Brennan and on the way meets outlaw Rory Calhoun, who is planning a bank robbery with three other members of the gang. Colleen is a very sensual girl and in no time she and Calhoun are having some of the most erotic scenes that I have ever seen on a movie. The story, by Louis L'Amour is good and unpredictable and it shows through Nina Foch and Colleen how a woman can be important in trying to stop a deadly fight between their men. The only criticism I have is about an Indian attack where stock shots seem to be used which do not blend so well. This is a totally neglected film which deserves to be seen.
