Fast-paced and exciting, a fairly good precis of the "death" of the California outlaw Murietta
14 March 2001 | by (Providence, Rhode Island) – See all my reviews



An enjoyable, well-acted little western "B". Very sympathetic to the plight of Mexicans in early California. Details in some depth the career of Joaquim Murietta, the famous outlaw and highwayman, and his legendary "death". Small budget, but good story.
