Decent old western with an ethical blemish
6 July 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A little bit of trivia about this movie.... It says "a feud between 2 outlaws" and yet in the credts only one is shown. The character of Sam, which was a main character never shows up in the credits. This was a result of a salary dispute and what would appear to be revenge from the studio. The actor's name was Jack Carney who also did his and Mr. Robbins stunts for the movie, and as the story goes, he was never properly paid for the role, but when he complained he was removed from the credits. He was a good actor and a good man and while there is always folklore in these old stories, the fact remains that he is there as big as life in the movie, but missing when the credits role.
