Sal Mineo in Shackles
13 January 2013 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

In the old west, ruggedly handsome cowboy Robert Horton (as Kiowa Jones) is roped into accompanying two prisoners to their hanging. He's not interested in the reward, but there are bounty hunters on the prairie gunning for cash. The two condemned men are sexy Sal Mineo (as Bobby Jack Wilkes), who has cold-heartedly murdered at over 20 people, and quiet wife-killing gypsy Nehemiah Persoff (as Skoda). Along the dangerous way, they encounter plain but pretty schoolteacher Diane Baker (as Amilia Rathmore). You can count on more danger, as well as a little bit of romance, considering Ms. Baker's arrival...

This early TV movie western was MGM and ABC's follow-up to Mr. Horton's prematurely canceled series "A Man Called Shenandoah" (1965-66). A second season of "Shenandoah" would have been preferable. Now in color, Horton's hair looks almost supernatural. Baker appears gray alongside him, apparently playing an older woman. The movie is mainly entertaining due to Mr. Mineo's cocky performance. It picks up whenever Mineo's "Bobby the Kid" threatens to kill or be killed.
