Good Premise, Flatly Executed
9 May 2012 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

To challenge b&w TV, Universal turned out a number of these Technicolor B-westerns in the mid- 1950's. I don't know why they bothered with color here since the action seldom leaves town. Except for the opening scene, it looks like the entire movie was shot on the Universal lot, with no colorful vistas to spice up the visuals. That might be okay if the screenplay weren't so talky or if Jock Mahoney as the marshal could work up some emotion. Too bad he and the comely Corday appear to be walking through their respective roles. Then too, one of the great sneering punks of the period, Jan Merlin, is largely wasted in a weak role.

Dale Robertson as the bad guy manages to show some life, but gets little help from director Jones who appears unengaged except for the sequence of Billy (Merlin) fleeing town, which happily shows some imagination. Actually, having a moral debt to the bad guy as the movie's premise has real dramatic possibility. But that would have taken a better director and a more motivated cast. As things stand, it's only an average oater, at best.
