Robert Mitchum is magnificent as a valiant sheriff along with a gorgeous Angie Dickinson as a Saloon girl
5 July 2006 | by See all my reviews

The film is based in a Will Henry novel titled ¨Who rides with Wyatt Earp¨thus he is the Deputy Ben Kane(Robert Mitchum),Earp before to serve as a policeman in Wichita(Kansas) and as assistant town marshal of Dodge City(Kansas) he served at another towns as is narrated in this film .Earp was a man of cool courage and gunfighting skill, he was hired as a shotgun by the authorities became the town marshal.Here is developed his friendship with a young gunman called Billy(Robert Walker Jr.)who results actually to be Johnny Ringo ,a posterior enemy and along with Clanton-McLaury faction resulted on 26 October 1881 the explosive showdown known as the Gunfight at the OK Corral.

The picture contains a sensational main actors casting and a character-full supporting cast. Robert Mitchum as brave sheriff although affected for previous death is astounding ,his character has a backbone of bitterness somewhere deep inside.Robert Walker as impetuous gunman is cool, he makes a similar role to Ricky Nelson in ¨Rio Bravo¨.Angie Dickinson repeats her usual characters as Saloon call girl.Paul Fix as stagecoach driver makes a role likeness to Walter Brennan.Film is well directed by Burt Kennedy. An eighty per cent of this American director's movies have been Western,bad,good and indifferent in equal proportions.He made delightful and tremendously agreeable Westerns(Support you local Sheriff,Support your local gunfighter)but also realized objectionable,duds,muddled and disastrous Westerns though his greatest success was as screenwriter of the splendid series Boetticher-Scott in the late 50s(Tall T,Ride lonesome,Comanche station). This motion picture will like to Robert Mitchum and Angie Dickinson fans.
