Requiem for old timers...

That's the last film directed by the vet Spencer Gordon Bennett, the man who made so many serials, back in the 40's and 50's, with William Witney. He was a very prolific film maker, but only B ones. This western is in the same "trail" as the others directed by the likes of RG Springsteen or Lesley Selander, vets too. Westerns charactered by old timers such as Dana Andrews, Lon Chanet Jr, Richard Arlen and so many old western actors. But no real stars, of course.

This is the tale of a gunman - Rod Cameron - who impersonates a judge whom he became the friend, when this latest was on the way to a little town where outlaws ruled it, and where a man was murdered. Outlaws lead by Stephen Mac Nally who decided to get rid of the law man. And they succeed in it. So Cameron takes his place as a judge in order to avenge his friend...

He arrives in town and every one thinks he is really a law man. But he confesses to a young couple who sympathize with him who he actually is. And, guess what, they learn him the law, how to lead a trial.

So unusual, nearly funny.

Not bad, not boring, but the ending is disappointing. Only surprising.

I always keep in mind the last picture of a last movie's director.
