Little masterpiece - No mainstream, very different.
29 April 2004 | by (Salzburg, Austria) – See all my reviews

This western has a very small budget.

But the story and the actors are as powerful and motivated as it were a blockbuster.

John Derek delivers a convincing portrait of a young man full of goodwill and also full of wrath. He is perfect for the leading part. His supporting cast - although not so well known - is a good one. Especially Nick Adams and the actor who plays the sheriff.

Gerd Oswald directed a couple of movies with stories of high morality. This one is his best.

The story is about a man who was in prison for manslaughter. He tries to come back to society and to his profession as a farmer but there is a man who wants revenge for the death of his brother...Village people are not very happy too...
