Watchable European Western
9 December 2010 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This a "town tamer " Western ,like such classics as "Dodge City " or "My Darling Clementine " ,and without ever approaching the heights of such quality movies it is a perfectly decent little movie,always assuming you can overlook some less than ideal dubbing . The local Mr Big is rancher Edwards ,whose men display open contempt for the law ,and whose son is a vicious ,bullying weakling ,hiding behind his father's power and reputation.The new Sheriff turns out to be made of sterner stuff than his predecessors and stands up to Edwards and his men ,finding time along the way for some amorous dalliance with the daughter of a man killed on Edward's orders.

There are hints of "Rio Bravo" in the characters of the town drunk redeemed by the support of the Sheriff ,and the elderly town gaoler ,a garrulous and verbose gentleman .These have parallels with the roles played by Dean Martin and Walter Brennan in the Hawks classic,

The movie is a sturdy ,uncomplicated and old fashioned Western that will be mainly enjoyed by those who like that particular genre ,
