An outlaw must decide whether to stick his neck out for an innocent man in this hardboiled post-Civil War adventure written by noir legend Daniel Mainwaring (Out of the Past) and starring Frank Lovejoy (In a Lonely Place) and James Best (The Dukes of Hazzard). Beaten and forced out of town by the corrupt state police of Texas, Kit Caswell (Best) heads to the hills where he meets the notorious desperado Cole Younger (Lovejoy). Becoming fast friends, the two take jobs on a cattle drive, unaware that a jealous rival (Jan Merlin) with eyes on Caswell's girl (Abby Dalton) has falsely accused him of murder. So when Caswell is arrested and Younger slips away, only the testimony from the outlaw himself can save Caswell from the hangman. Written by
You must take this film with a wheelbarrow of salt. Two young men get in dutch with the Texas state police during the 1870's and are forced to go on the lam. One teams up with Cole Younger, and winds up being framed for a crime he didn't commit. A good western, but I never figured Cole Younger to look like a middle aged insurance agent or to be so mellow hearted. Hollywood really did a job on this old west badman. And that courtroom scene near the end! No way!
