Plays like a mediocre TV Western, but has a likable cast
30 November 2014 | by (Ohio/PA border) – See all my reviews

In 1967's "Hostile Guns" George Montgomery plays a Texas sheriff who hires young troublemaker (Tab Hunter) to help him transport a handful of prisoners to the state penitentiary in another town. The captives include a burley tough guy (Leo Gordon), an embezzling railroad big shot (Robert Emhardt), an amiable Mexican (Pedro Gonzalez-Gonzalez) and a woman who was forced to kill her no-good man (Yvonne DeCarlo). Gordon's character has relatives & friends who seek to break him free on the trip.

This is basically a C-Grade version of "Stagecoach," but with a paddy wagon full of presumed ne'er-do-wells rather than just the Ringo Kid. Montgomery is an excellent masculine protagonist and the rest of the cast is solid, but the movie's letdown by the low-budget and melodramatic script. Like I said in my title blurb, the movie plays like a mediocre TV Western, which can be observed by the studio-bound sets and location shooting at Vasquez Rocks, where a lot of TV shows were shooting at the time (and to this day). This shouldn't come as a surprise since the director has a long history in TV productions.

While the film is worth watching if you like the cast, its ineptness is sometimes glaring. Like the stuntman they use to replace Hunter in the longshots of a fistfight at the beginning where it's painfully obvious that the guy's not Hunter, to put it nicely. Speaking of this fight, the young punk takes on his out-of-shape uncle who appears to be at least 65 years old and the old guy holds his own and even appears to be winning. Why sure!

The film runs 91 minutes.

GRADE: C-
