Lawman takes outlaws in overcoming rugged obstacles plot
27 October 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie the same night that ABC was broadcasting Clint Walker's the Bounty Man. They both have the same plot of a man taking outlaws in with bounty hunters on their trail. This is the superior effort because it tries for something different. After years of seeing the Cartwright boys on Bonanza and Barkley's on the Big Valley, risking their lives to help the law just because it was the right thing to do, it is refreshing to see Robert Horton's character refuse to take the responsibility of taking in Sal Mineo's Billy-The-Kid inspired character and Nehemiah Persoff's wife killer because it isn't his job. His refusal is realistic. Gary Merrill's dying sheriff basically shames him into taking the job by pointing out that if they just let Mineo's psychotic outlaw go he'll be free to kill again. The people Horton's Kiowa Jones character meet such as Diane Baker who is presented as unglamorous as possible are equally reluctant to help out. When Kiowa Jones is forced to kill, he is genuinely upset over the killing of fellow human beings. Highly unusual for the TV or the movies, where the hero kills and never seems to think twice about it. Across the Great Divide with Kirk Douglass and Hang'em High with Clint Eastwood trod the same territory as the Dangerous Days of Kiowa Jones, but the Dangerous Days of Kiowa Jones is a cooler title. Some folks might be put off by the standard locations such as Vasquez Rocks, yep those leaning rocks that Cheyenne, Maverick, Roy Rogers movie and every other western seemed to take place, but if you can get past that, you're in for a great movie. Highly recommended.
