Who knew that Chill Wills would be the best actor of the bunch.
27 December 2015 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie contains a bunch of Hollywood actor's offspring in a Western about...about....well it's about three groups of people all out in the western wilderness with different agendas.

You first have six rebels and one union officers and a chick that have stole a large amount of money. Not much is revealed about the eight but they have the money and going through Indian territory. -- Then you have one person chasing the group, Tyler Duane (Gary Conway) along with his friend, Jeff Shelby (Jody McCrea) and two other people that have just married and want a new start in a different location, Morgan Cole (James Mitchum)and Lily Glendenning (Alana Ladd)also along for the ride is a preacher Sam Shelby (Chill Wills). ---Now on the trail of the five is the father of the new bride, Jesse Glendenning (Robert Lowery), and his bunch, that think his daughter has been kidnapped. Now the entire group is in the Apache territory that will only lead to one after another being killed for a variety of reasons.

There is more going on in this long story than 'just the chase'. There are family members in different groups and also old friendships that have turned sour. All these experience add to the situation as the group makes there way through the dangers of the early west.

The concept of the story seemed to be an interesting tale. However, the screenplay, along with the suspicious acting abilities, made the story feel like a much longer trek than needed. There were actually some very good scenes in the movie but there just was not much feeling in the heart of the actors. After the first thirty minutes, I thought this was going to be a terrible movie but as things settle down and we got some western action going, the film became somewhat interesting. And the glue that kept the viewer's attention was the veteran actor Chill Wills. Who would have thought?
