Featuring outstanding Arizona scenery in Cinemascope color, one interestingly written character (Billy), and Jack Nicholson in a young anti-hero performance, what is wrong with this Western? The answer is: Nothing is wrong. Having a budget that obviously consists of little more than pennies does not negatively impact this film much, except for some low-paid "discount" acting at times.
To me the most intriguing Westerns are ones that portray some aspect of the Old West based at least partly on fact. I put this film in that category as it does portray a phenomenon of those days, namely the existence of a few Sheriffs who were little more than legalized executioners.
The cast and crew just went out to Arizona and filmed this on the desert in a straightforward manner. It works for me.
