This is a typical Audie vehicle with typical Audie performance. That is not a slight as I love Audie Murphy and always find his performances likeable, unpretentious and winning. He looks great in this movie! The plot itself is nothing exceptional but Duryea shines brightly here and his performance leaves you wanting more. There is also steady stream of action that keeps things ticking over quite nicely.
