A town NOT too tough too tame .........
16 June 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this interesting 1958 B-western, George Montgomery is sent to rowdy Tombstone to clean up lawlessness and corruption there. He encounters the likes of Johnny Ringo and Ike Clanton as he proceeds to throw the book (and LEAD ) at the lawless cowpokes. Eventually, good overcomes evil and all is well in the Arizona town..........

Montgomery is fine as the good guy, riding to the rescue. His acting range was limited, but he made up for it with a dogged intensity. Jim Davis was very good as Ringo, making this a fun but undemanding film.

Fans of this era of western film should enjoy this one. It's not Shakespeare, but it is entertaining in a low-budget sorta way !
