An entertaining film of Western.
23 July 2009 | by (Spain) – See all my reviews

Frank Mason and his four children, , former soldiers of the confederate army, assault a bank in White rock after having lost his farm in the war. In the meantime dies assassinated by one of the assailants Peter Willoughby a young boy, whose mother. Nora Willoughby (Ruth Roman) sees one of the components of the group assailant, Bedloe Mason (J. Carrol Naish). The repentance of Bedloe takes you to take the tough decision to return to the people to surrender, and count that what happened was not a murder but an unfortunate accident. Despite opposition from the other brothers and his father, decides leave and after being wounded by one of them, was picked up by John Willoughby (John Payne) father of Peter. Despite the fact that Nora Willoughby recognizes it as one of the band assailant, decides not to tell her husband to avoid another death as that of his son. This is a good film of Western, with marvelous performances as the John Payne and Ruth Roman, also highlights of Ben Jonson and J. Carrol Naish. Has a great photography in black and white. What more i liked the film, is the dispute between the decision to Nora to avoid another death as that of his son, and the desire for revenge very frequent in infinity of scripts of films Western. It is a movie well done and very amusing to see.
