An Early 60's Western
17 June 2015 | by (Amarillo, Texas) – See all my reviews

After his son is lynched a bandit by the name of "Juan Avila" (Peter Mamakos) swears revenge upon the local sheriff named "Cal" (House Peters Jr.) and the rest of the men in the town. Not long afterward he rides into town with his other two sons and after taking several men hostage in the local saloon announces that he will kill one person every ten minutes until Sheriff Cal comes in to face him. But the sheriff isn't too keen upon walking into a trap. Now rather than reveal any more of this movie and risk spoiling it for those who haven't seen it I will just say that for an old black-and-white film produced in the early 60's this particular picture wasn't too bad. Unfortunately, there was a certain amount of moralizing within the story which was quite obvious and in my opinion lessened the overall effect. All things considered though, I thought it was an adequate western and I have rated it accordingly. Average.
