A Good Mystery Western
24 March 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This was a movie originally made for TV from what I have heard but was released to movie theatres as part of a double billing since it was better than expected. It is a good murder trial movie set in the west. It is a short movie but well worth the time to enjoy it. The cast is very good. Jeffrey Hunter is excellent as the defense attorney Timothy Higgins. His reply to one of the ladies disgusted with some of the towns people is amusing and classical. Also character actor Preston Foster is good as the Judge and James Coburn as Boyd Palmer shows the promise that was to make him a big star in the future. It is not a classic but if you have spare time it is worth the hour that you will spend watching it. And watch out for James Coburn's big grin. Enjoy.
