Howdy. We have steak and beef stew, and steak and beef stew.
Which one do you recommend?
Neither. The beef's tough. But it's all we've got. And I suggest black coffee; the milk's turning sour.
Well, at least you're honest. I'll leave it up to you.

This is Selander's first film for Producer Lyles and his best Western for years. Like all of Lyles' Westerns, the main fault is the pedestrian screenplay which features Andrews as the hired killer seeking revenge for the death of his wife at the hands of Bettger and Cabot. He finds them ensconced as sheriff and saloon owner respectively, from which positions they're bleeding the town dry. Thus Andrews can liberate the town as well as secure his revenge in a corpse-strewn finale. Jaeckel has a marvellous part as Bettger's sadistic deputy.
