Storyline

Dan Tomlinson, aka Will Sabre, head of a gang of outlaws, states his intentions to go straight but is warned by the new gang leader, Dunsten, that he has thirty days to come back to the gang---or else. On his way back to his hometown and girl, Judy, Dan picks up 10-year-old Robbie whose father has been killed. Dan gets a job as a bank teller and suspicion falls on him when a hold-up occurs and he doesn't use his guns. And, Dunsten and his former gang plants evidence to make it appear as if Dan cooperated with them. Dan is accused and now has to find a way to capture Dunsten and his gang, and clear his name.

They Drag Me Back In
11 March 2014 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Sad to say that a cheap production characterizes this George Montgomery B western. With some color and a few more touches Gun Duel In Durango might have rated a bit higher. It also would have been nice had the hero who of course is Montgomery and chief villain Steve Brodie actually had a classic gun duel in the middle of street as per the title.

Even so Montgomery turns in a fine performance as an outlaw who wants to quit his gang and go straight, straight to Ann Robinson an old girl friend and marry her. But the gang won't leave him alone and the current leader Steve Brodie has a notion he can take Montgomery.

In addition to Robinson, Montgomery also picks up orphan Bobby Clark and the three do become a family after a few rough patches. George must have felt like Michael Corleone the way his old crew wants to drag him back in.

Western fans should be pleased with this one.
