Montgomery rides the range yet again ........
18 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this standard late 50's color western from George Montgomery, a decent script is hampered by so-so casting and pacing . Montgomery is convincing in the lead hero role --- in a film that is ultimately routine.

As movies moved into the late 50's and 1960's, audiences were demanding more adult themes and conflict. This film is an example of that trend. Strained friendship, betrayal, redemption and renewal are all on display in this film ...... but it's too much in too short a film.

This is really a "C" western, and while it does entertain it is undemanding and barely memorable........
