Western hostage drama
20 December 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

An interesting group of passengers on the Stagecoach To Fury get waylaid at a stagecoach station and taken as hostage. The bandits led by Rodolfo Hoyos are expecting a shipment of gold on the stage, but it isn't there. To save the others lives especially after Hoyos shoots and wounds driver Paul Fix, guard Forrest Tucker gives up the fact they're to meet the shipment at the station. So the bandits sit there and wait. And also kill a few useless passengers who try to make their own plans separate from Tucker and Fix.

Compared to most on the Stagecoach that was the title of the John Ford classic film these are a pretty scurvy lot as some flashbacks show. The bandits are almost dishing out some cosmic justice to these people.

This independent western released by 20th Century Fox even got some Academy recognition with a nomination for black and white cinematography. The cinematography of the final shootout in the desert and the holdup is well done.

In the cast my favorite is Mari Blanchard who plays one coldhearted woman who thinks that men just grovel at a wink from her. Does she ever find out different. And she has a nasty secret kept from the rest of the hostages.

A solid B western, you can't go wrong with this.
