Did this inspire THE CRIPPLED MASTERS?
25 September 2003 | by (Victoria, BC) – See all my reviews

Embassy Pictures was the RKO Pictures of its day - making "major studio" productions on lower budgets. In this case, VERY low - it's pretty obvious that it didn't take a lot of money (or time) to shoot this western! It starts off as a typical vengeance saga, though takes a twist when the two gunfighters are injured and must work more like a team than ever. Lansing (who greatly resembles Steve McQueen here) is okay, though a little subdued. Pat Wayne is pretty decent, and shows he could have had a bigger film career if he'd been given a chance. Slim Pickens is pretty hammy, though his character is written in a very simple-minded way, like you would expect a cowboy villain to be a few decades earlier. In fact, aside from the musical score (which has the flavor of those found in spaghetti westerns starting to come out around this time), the movie in its writing and directing greatly resembles many westerns filmed in the late '40s to early '50. Only really recommended for die-hard fans of westerns.
