Tony Martin rides into oblivion
29 October 2001 | by (Temple, New Hampshire) – See all my reviews

After enjoying Mr Martin's voice in many musicals, I found it very difficult to buy his casting and acting in a Western! The story line was ok, however Mr. Martin bombs as a cowboy and I wonder who put him upto this endeavor which falls very short of the mark.
