Storyline

Dan Beattie gives up his lawman job to move further west and rejoin his old war buddy Curt Warren in the town of Sundown. At first mistaken for a railroad agent by Beau Santee, a Sundown businessman who wants to keep the railroad away from his town, Dan is nearly killed by Santee's henchman, Mark Faber. Dan discovers that his old pal Curt works for Santee. Even after learning Dan's true identity, Santee considers him trouble and plots to get rid of him. With the help of Curt's son Stony, Dan tries to get Curt to take a stand on the right side of the law. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Stuart's working her plan
6 January 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Man From God's Country has George Montgomery fired recently as sheriff of one town going to visit a friend in another town, House Peters,Jr. who seems to be mysteriously under the thumb of Gregg Barton and his right hand man James Griffith who does the enforcement of Barton's will when needed. This is not a normal situation by any means and Peters' own son Kim Charney is troubled by it.

Of course the bad guys are all taken care of as you would expect in a B western. I have to say though that the plot and motivations of the characters were pretty muddled. Except for saloon girl Randy Stuart. She's working a plan that will put her with a winner no matter who comes out on top.

Montgomery never got the acclaim for his B westerns in the way Randolph Scott did. They vary in quality, some were good, over all Randolph Scott's were better. But this one from Allied Artists is near the bottom.
