No Dancing
22 June 2014 | by (New York City) – See all my reviews

Gene Nelson rose to prominence as a dancer -- his signature move was a leap from the floor to the top of a piano. He doesn't do any dancing in this decent Fox western about a couple of people who claim the bounty for killing a bad man -- and whose brother shows up in town whle they are disputing their claims.

Nelson appears in a beat-up outfit with his hair grown out. This is in contrast to the neat look cultivated by other western stars. The time of the B western was just about over and the plot points clearly to the scruffy violence of spaghetti westerns.

Veteran cinematographer Floyd Crosby shoots the dry landscape beautifully. One would expect no less of him.
