Storyline

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 Anonymous

A superior cast cannot salvage this routine oater
4 May 2000 | by (Tecumseh ok) – See all my reviews

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.
