Murphy plays an ex-Quantrill's Raider who's released from jail with buddy Cooper to be deputized as Arizona Rangers in order to hunt down the remnant of the gang, rumored to he hiding out in a town "neer dee border" in the words of the loose-lipped saloon dancer. The goons are found hiding in an Indian mission. Murphy and Cooper pretend to want to rejoin the gang, but the bad guys catch on and brutally beat Cooper, who protects Murphy's true sentiments to the death. Written by
Part of the Raiders fall back to guard the entrance to the canyon while the rest removes the brush blocking their path. When the posse arrives, one raider is shot and falls behind the prone raiders. He has a pink shirt, black jacket and cowboy hat. The same raider gets up and is shot again later in the sequence after the lead raiders are shown. See more »
This movie is a remake of the 1951 movie "The Texas Rangers", same plot, same storyline, same lines. Only the locale and the actors are different. I take that back, this time it wasn't just a couple of men who were removed from prison, they were moved from state to state.
Having said that, I did enjoy the movie. There were enough changes to make it interesting. Audie Murphy did a wonderful job in the lead role. The location was beautiful. The director did a good job in making this movie stand on it's own.
If you liked the earlier movie, you will enjoy this remake. Audie Murphy fans should enjoy seeing him in this.
