The movie had been pre-sold on the basis of Albert Kallis' poster of leading lady Marla English tied to an anthill. There was no such scene in the initial script - the scene wasn't written until much later. See more »

A matched pair
27 November 2015 | by See all my reviews

One of the infamous Checker gang escapes from prison and on the run shoots John Agar down and takes his weapon with him. As Agar's dad had two long barreled weapons made he gave one each to his twin sons. And it's John Agar out looking for the guy who killed his brother John Agar.

During his search for the Checker gang Agar collects a curious crew around him. Michael Connors a wanted outlaw with an edge to him, talkative trick shot artist Raymond Hatton, and exiled Indian princess Marla English.

Flesh And The Spur was strictly for the drive-in trade. Those matched long barreled pistols that are harped on have a homoerotic twist to them that you couldn't miss. Sometimes you think Agar is more interested in that matched set than in getting his father's killer.

All these folks have done better work, especially Hatton whose credits go back to the earliest of silent films.
