excellent cast, enjoyable western
26 February 2008 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Black Spurs was a routine western, but the fact that so many famous veteran actors were in the cast gave it a special interest. Rory Calhoun, Terry Moore, Patricia Owens and DeForest Kelley don't even look old. Linda Darnell, Scott Brady, Lon Chaney Jr, Bruce Cabot and Richard Arlen are all perfect for their parts. The story, about Santee (Calhoun) who becomes a bounty hunter and wears black spurs is very well built up up to the end which I felt could have been better. It is good to see all these actors, the excellent final shootout, and also to enjoy this type of western that used once to be routine but nowadays has disappeared.
