Storyline

Reverend Macklin is headed for Lodestone where his father was killed 25 years before when the Indians burnt down the church. He plans to rebuild the church and minister to the people, but all he seems to do is stop the gambling at the Silver Palace Saloon. Marty wants him to build on the other side of town and will finance the new church if Macklin moves, but he will not. When Marty is robbed by a gang of outlaws one of them hides the money in the church altar. Macklin finds that he has been ordered to San Diego due to his lack of accomplishment, and it might take a miracle for him to stay. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Ahhh...comfort viewing!
6 June 2001 | by (Moorpark, CA) – See all my reviews

While this is pretty standard 50s western fare, it allowed Mickey Rooney to try a characterization somewhat different from his more exaggerated portrayals in the Andy Hardy series or in comedies such as The Atomic Kid. I am not a fan of westerns myself, but having been raised in the 50s, this was more than nostalgia, it was comfort viewing! Mickey and Hugh O'Brian both do competent jobs, and the supporting cast is composed of many familiar faces. If you are fed up with overt sex, out of control profanity, in-your-face violence, then this is just what you need. Gentle, entertaining, and upbeat, I recommend it for a rainy day or to unwind from a stressful one.
