A different western-a lawman with a bow and arrow.
25 October 1998 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

This is the third, and perhaps the weakest, entry from L&B(Lyon and Bartlett)Productions for Lippert Pictures Inc. Agar is competent as Johhny Rush, a returning vet that finds his land and girl taken by a rich cattle baron. When Rush is wounded in a gunfight, he must learn to use bow and arrow to compensate for his bad gun arm. Routine plot, with this added twist is assisted by support of Lyon and Bartlett as cattle baron and henchman, respectively, and Wayne Morris as a sympathetic bar tender.
