Storyline

A peace-loving man named Ben Kane takes a job as deputy marshal of Lords, in the old West. Kane is no lawman, but he accepts the badge because he has an old score to settle with the town's chief trouble-maker. Once on the job, Kane must also deal with a young sharpshooter named Billy Young and a sharp and sassy saloon dancer, Lily. Written by Dan Navarro <daneldorado@yahoo.com>

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

This exciting picture contains sensational main actor 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 Mitchum said he intended to retire from acting when this movie finished filming in late 1968 , but in the following year he agreed to star in Ryan's daughter (1970). Despite being top billed Robert Mitchum does not turn up until 19 minutes into the film . Robert Walker as impetuous gunman is cool , he makes a similar role to Ricky Nelson in ¨Rio Bravo¨ . Angie Dickinson repeats her usual character as Saloon call-girl . Paul Fix as stagecoach driver makes a role likeness to Walter Brennan . The film was 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 appeal to Robert Mitchum and Angie Dickinson fans.
