Many movies deserve their obscurity, and none more than this formula Western. Direction, editing, writing-- all are uninspired, especially the occasional attempts at humor.
But the casting is atrocious. Desperately bad. They've all done good work in other roles, but in this
So clean-cut he almost squeaks, Keir Dullea is at no point convincing as a gambling, carousing womanizer.
Buddy Ebsen adds nothing newnot one glance, not one inflection-- to the tiresomely familiar role of the wise, slow-spoken, solitary old-timer.
In the eponymous role, Lois Nettleton stares soulfully toward Ebsen, Dullea, or the near distance. That's about it. Refreshing though it is to see a rather plain actress as a star, she finds no way to redeemwith humor, with spirit-- a woman who did not advertise for a husband (her boss did, played by a wry Marie Windsor), and who has almost no curiosity about her sight-unseen future mate and his home. In fact, objectively, her non-reaction is almost criminally irresponsible for a widow with a child.
If ever a film deserved to be in the background of some other activity (including sleep), it's this one.
