A time-passer.
30 November 2012 | by (Bradenton, Florida) – See all my reviews

This is a western produced by A.C. Lyles--a guy who specialized in making lower budget westerns in the 1960s starring folks who were past their prime. This made casting the films cheaper but also provided work to some decent actors. But, because of the age of the cast, I have referred to Lyles' films as 'geezer westerns' and this isn't much of an exaggeration. In many of his westerns, the average age of the cast is about 60. In "Hostile Guns", however, the cast is relatively young...relatively. It stars George Mongomery (51) and also includes Donlevy (66), Red Barry (55), Fuzzy Knight (61), Yvonne DeCarlo (45), John Russell (46). However, a 36 year-old Tab Hunter co-stars in the film--making him a young pup by comparison. I don't recall Hunter appearing in other westerns--other than his ultra-campy "Lust in the Dust".

George Montgomery is in charge of transporting prisoners to prison. However, he's got a really nasty guy (Leo Gordon) in custody and needs an assistant, so he 'encourages' a prisoner already in custody (Tab Hunter plays a guy in jail for a minor charge) to assist him. Unfortunately, the nasty guy has some family members who vow to follow them and set him free. Along the route, they pick up several other prisoners--including a very stereotypical and mostly harmless Mexican (Pedro Gonzalez Gonzalez), a really obnoxious public official (Robert Emhardt) and a lady (Yvonne DeCarlo) accused of murdering her abuser. In many ways, this comes off like a reworking of the film "Stagecoach"--but with a motley crew of prisoners, not stagecoach passengers. It is a well-used idea--but COULD have been a lot better. Why? Because some of the characters are terribly written--such as Gonzalez's very silly prisoner who WANTS to go to prison!!! But much worse is Emhardt is the worst, as his character lays on his routine so thick that he is utterly unbelievable. Overall, a time-passer--but also a film that should have been better.
