A good grade B wester of the 1960s
13 January 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is good western worth seeing. Of course it is not a classic western like High Noon but it is good of its' type. If you have 67 minutes to spare it is worth watching. It was made to be as part of double features that were common at the time it was made. It is a good movie with a good cast. Bill Williams plays Temple Houston (Sam Houston's son) who is the DA with a sense of Justice. He is located in Fort Smith, Ark and works with Judge Parker in 1872. His area includes the Oklahoma Territory which was the Indian territory at that time. Ted De Corsia is very good as Chief Buffalo Horn who is falsely accused of murder. This was an unusual role type for Ted and he was very good. Gloria Talbott plays the Chief's daughter and Walter Barlin (a character actor of many movies and television) plays the fair minded newspaper man. It is worth seeing even though it is not too historically accurate because Temple Houston was only 12 in 1872 and Judge Parker wasn't appointed to the area until 1875. Still worth seeing.
