This is an excellent western. With the exception of unlimited rifle ammo fire, the movie was made in super black & white and is well shot and directed. I think that it is excellent in authenticity of equipment and props while the story line might be a little off. Certainly could be one to allow the kids to see without worry. MUCH better than most westerns. Mr. Man from Uncle plays the part of a coward who finds his courage and comes to the aid of his allies. The casting was extremely well done with each of the role players being a natural for their part. Look at the background props and see how well they were thought out. If I had a person from overseas come visit, I would show this movie as one which represents a good western movie.
