A very acceptable little western.

It s always interesting to discover an Edward Bernds film. This director was an eclectic one: thrillers - CALLING HOMICIDE - sci-fi - WORLD WITHOUT END, SPACE MASTER X7, RETURN OF THE FLY - and westerns, such as this one and a bunch of many others. And I won't talk about THREE ST0OGES and BOWERY KIDS features...

This little flick is not very unusual, I admit. The topic is very predictable, but efficiently made. A young man is involved against his will with a gang of bank robbers and is then pursued by a posse and the outlaws themselves. And our lead has his girl with him, of course.

Good guy vs bad ones. Nothing more. But, as I told before, you can easily watch it without boredom. And Brian Donley in the gang leader character is worthwhile for the whole picture.

What else could we ask for? It's a B movie, after all.
