Mediocre Oater
23 August 2010 | by (Fort Wayne/Las Vegas) – See all my reviews

This movie might have been serviceable entertainment had it been released in the early 1950's. However, by the time that this came out in the mid-1960's, the Spaghetti Western was taking hold and the Revisionist Western making is debut.

The overly dramatic acting and score...the anachronistic clothing (Murphy's shirt has buttons along it's entire front as does his female costar's) and general "cleanliness" of the outdoors have been largely removed from Westerns by this point Basically, this movie came out 10-12 years too late.

If you are an Audie Murphy fan, then you'll get what you are expecting.If you are not,I'd suggest that you pass on this one.
