History is played with fast and loose in this tepid tale of Cole Younger (I always thought he was one of the Younger Brothers that rode with Frank and Jesse James, but not so here). Frank Lovejoy, a great dramatic actor was terribly mis-cast as the title character. Lovejoy made his mark in Hollywood as a "hard-boiled type" either a reporter, GI or cop. One can tell easily that he is NOT at home on horseback. Merlin and Best give all in supporting roles and the lovely Ms. Dalton is, as always, easy on the eyes. But this one is easily passed by.
