Sullivan and Murphy great together
6 August 2012 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

In this western starring the experienced and capable actor Audie Murphy and the veteran actor Barry Sullivan, Murphy is a somewhat green Texas ranger who is reluctantly sent to bring the outlaw Jim Ford to justice in New Mexico:the setting of New Mexico is, in truth, Utah. Jim Ford is a suave, intelligent man who is, nonetheless, dangerous. In the story the two cross a long, seemingly-never-ending desert, fighting off Ford's enemies, the enemies of Seven-Ways-From-Sundown(Murphy's character's name) and fighting the Indians, who are the enemies of both men. Though Seven-Ways-From-Sundown is, again, inexperienced, he is completely determined to bring Ford back. Though the movie seems somewhat long, no one is jaded from watching it. It is slow-moving but maintains the attention of the viewer(s). A great flick.
