Today, I have to watch three Jean Yarbrough's movies. This director is a famous grade B film director. Many of his features are hard to catch. This western is pretty interesting. I won't repeat the topic, already told in the plot line. But it begins rather in an unusual way, when we see the "future" villains of the film being attacked by bandits - or may I say the ones you guess the real villains of the film. But it appears that the initial bad guy - the Mexican - is actually the one who will become the lead's friend - Rod Cameron.
And what I like in this film, is that the story focuses on the bad guys
the big rancher and his son's hot relations...
For the rest, it remains in the classic manner.
But I am really fond of this little film. I love unusual schemes in a screenplay.
