User Reviews

Not the best Jack Arnold western ever made but...

A pretty good time waster. Effective, fast paced, with very good action sequences. The cast is also adequate: Stephen Mac Nally, Lex Barker, Mara Corday, and John Dehner as the bad guy: a banker involved with a gang of stagecoach robbers, outlaws.

But unfortunately the topic is rather foreseeable. Barker is the guy who is accused for being one of the outlaws who robbed the stagecoach. And he finds an allied in Stephen Mac Nally, a sheep man.

The gunfights sequences at the end of the movie are vibrating.

A good western, but we are far away from NO NAME ON THE BULLET, also directed by Jack Arnold and, I admit, a rather psychological western.
