Inferior revisionist wild west history
25 October 1998 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

This one is bad, from start to finish. The story tries to justify the murder of Wild Bill Hickok, painting him as a claim-jumping scoundrel. A bad plot, poor direction and non-existent production values make this one easy to pass on. If there is a redeeming feature here, it is the presence of Ms. Westcott, whose talents are wasted in this lackluster event.
