5 November 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The 'HELLIONS' was a great movie, a great cast, a perfect film ! The song i've never forgotten, though i haven't seen the movie since it last aired on NetWork TV in the late 60's if i recall. It is a great film, and i too keep hoping it will surface somewhere, hopefully on DVD. I often think about it, and some may remember the father of the Hellions was in TARZANS GREATEST ADVENTURE, with GORDON SCOTT in 1960. Another great movie ! And TARZAN THE MACNIFICENT with GORDEN SCOTT was another Classic ! The HELLIONS was and is one of the best movies ever made, definitely forever on the favorites list !!! If i recall the ending was a fight atop a roof between the hero and the outlaw father ! I recall moments here and there of the film, such as Jeffries saying to the guy who admitted killing his son he was looking for, ... " No, not you, not a little man"... !!! then he thrashed him if i recall with barbwire ! Indeed, a great movie ! Similer to another obscure western, and great movie, THE PLUNDERERS !
