Evidently an attempt by Mercedes McCambridge to appear in a dumber western than "Johnny Guitar" and she succeeds in the role of Nell Hagen who sets out to retaliate for the hanging of her father Judd, who ruled their valley with an iron hand before the natives revolted. She is accompanied by her brothers, Ritt and Kirby, a hump-backed half-wit, and their sensuous cousin Julie Ann who marries Ritt but gets nekked and seduces Kirby. The family then robs a bank and kills two tellers before dropping in on Charley Gately, leader of the group that hanged old man Hagen, and kills him and his son Gabe and daughter-in-law Ruth. And they head for the border and it gets really mean and nasty. Written by Les Adams <>

one of the best 3 A M movies ever
25 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

under the right circumstances this movie is what epitomizes not a B but a C movie and sometimes you just have to appreciate that style. having seen it once at 3 in the morning while doing what graduate students do at 3 in the morning I was amazed at how bad the dialog was (MST3K material if I ever heard it) and the plot line was so bizarre it reminded me of Blazing Saddles without the great actors and without the slapstick. I recall a scene where the hunchback was making love to the mentally retarded girl in the chicken coop. not only do I recall an early version of Duke of Prunes by Frank Zappa (I swear it was during the above referenced scene,) but also some of Peaches en Regalia also. it would probably make a good black and white Saturday morning recovering from a hangover movie. coffee and the frequent, unintentionally funny scenes.
