Better Days
24 November 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

The last gasp of the theatrically released B western was in the Sixties and the last theaters showing double bills probably had some feature like Stage To Thunder Rock on the bottom of the bill. A.C. Lyles made many of these films, some of the best of them. This isn't one of them though.

Sheriff Barry Sullivan has the task to bring in some outlaws, the catch is that the outlaw father Keenan Wynn took Sullivan in as a lad and raised him as a foster son. At the beginning though Sullivan shoots one son and apprehends the other Ralph Taeger. You know Wynn will be gunning for Sullivan and trying to free his boy.

At the same time bounty hunter Scott Brady needing money for his blind daughter Suzanne Cupito leaves her with her mother Wanda Hendrix and at the behest of city fathers Allan Jones and Robert Strauss goes after a bounty on Taeger and Wynn. And if Sullivan gets in the way too bad because they're not crazy about him either.

And still a third family mother Anne Seymour, father Lon Chaney, Jr., and daughters Marilyn Maxwell and Laurel Goodwin who run the station on the Thunder Rock line are having to pull up stakes, they owe some back taxes. Maxwell's home for a visit, but she's led a sordid life. Goodwin wants to lead any kind of life away from her parents. Chaney is henpecked and Seymour just wants the money to save the home.

A whole lot of these folks meet up at the stageline station and a lot gets thrashed out. Sad to say you do lose quite a bit of interest in how this all turns out. And in fact the climax showdown between Sullivan and Wynn is poorly, almost routinely staged.

And needless to say this whole cast as seen better days.
