Two stories in one in this disjointed Western
19 February 2006 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

This feature length offering from the TV series " Tales Of Wells Fargo", suffers from bad editing throughout the movie. It appears that the editors have put together two stories and then squeezed them into one with a rather disjointed result.

If the two tales had been shown as 2 separate 'oaters' in the "Wells Fargo" series, they would have been more acceptable.

Anyhow, having said that, Western fans will enjoy seeing their hero DALE ROBERTSON as Wells Fargo agent JIM HARDIE helping to expand the frontier and trying to make the old west a safer place for pioneers.

Great to see PHILIP CAREY in one of his nasty bad guy roles as Jake Squire, bent on getting' even with Jim for putting him away 10 years earlier.

Old cowboy star, ROD CAMERON is also a welcome addition to the movie as Nathan Chance, but this is probably not one of his better films.

Overall, I would say that R.G Springsteen's direction has suffered from the editing of this movie which could have been a good deal better, but I am sure that the film company themselves are to blame for the finished product.
