Storyline

In old Spanish California, dashing cattleman Juan Obregon returns to the rancho of his friend Gaspar Melo, to find he's fathered a son on Rosa, one of Gaspar's identical twin daughters. Overjoyed, he plans to formalize his "unofficial" marriage. But trouble brews; Melo's land is of unclear title and the new Don Domingo hopes to grab it for his own profit. Violence results. Without even knowing who survived, Juan (accompanied by Rosa's tomboy sister Tonya) rides for revenge, through spectacular pastoral and wilderness scenery. Written by Rod Crawford <puffinus@u.washington.edu>

Quick Paced Western
30 March 2016 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film is a fairly quick paced western - they get to point of revenge fast within the first few minutes of the film - there is no drawn out waiting game. The character building happens during the "revenge" so there is none of character building before the good stuff starts like you see in so many of today's films.

This is a film I was introduced to via Lon Chaney Jr... watching his westerns. This one is a pretty good western with a great cast - a few big names. The story gets interesting right from the start - so it drew me in after about 10 minutes of viewing and I'm not a big fan of western movies.

7/10
