Told in a "double flashback" technique, this is not a 'pretty' western. Conners, in his best ever role is the hunter returning to claim the girl he left behind-10 years ago. There are so many memorable performances here it is hard to start--Akins and his imaginary friend 'Whiskey Man', Gorshin as the see-all ranch hand, and Bixby-well Bixby should have gotten the best supporting Oscar as the conniving dandy with a sado-masochist bent. This one is told in rugged fashion, and has a neat little theme song to go along with it. This is MUST viewing.
