The cowboys, the vaqueros and the newborn California.
20 April 2005 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This is an undeservedly forgotten film, I found it by chance as a DVD with a very low price. I did not expect much, but to my surprise it is quite a good western, also very interesting from the historical point of view. The story takes place when California became part of the United States, and it shows a potential conflict between English and Spanish speaking people, when Dennis Hopper, a real bad guy kills a Mexican. Pat Wayne is excellent as the young sheriff who does not wear a gun, also Ken Curtis as a tough guy who has problems with the law, but is willing to help Pat. Ben Stroud is the marshal and Dan O'Herlihy the judge. Yvonne Craig is cute as the young Mexican girl who falls for Wayne. There are the cowboys and the vaqueros waiting for the trial, the cowboys ready to turn Hopper loose, and the vaqueros waiting for him to be hanged. The story is very similar to "Star in the Dust", a 1956 western.
