one for the money, two for the road, seven is a good western.
23 January 2008 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This is a better than average Audie Murphy western. Murphy is a ranger whose task is to capture an outlaw (Barry Sullivan). After the capture, a certain friendship starts developing between Murphy and Sullivan.It is a dangerous relationship for Murphy. Jim Flood(Sullivan) is a killer who will stop at nothing to get his way. Murphy's hardest choice will be not to let this friendship interfere in his deliverance of Flood to justice. Seven Days From Sundown is the peculiar name of Murphy's character. He comes from a family where each one of the brothers had a numerical name. The first was called "One For The Money" and the second "Two For The Road". Directed by Harry Keller who was very familiar with westerns both as an editor and director.
