Enjoyable Louis L'Amour book made into a movie
26 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Light hearted and humorous. Old friends on opposite sides of the law. The friendship is obvious and presents humorous situations throughout the movie as they try to outwit each other. Leonard Nimoy is a cold hearted villain that hates Bijah Catlow and throughout the movie tries to kill him. The movie follows the Louis L'Amour story of the same name pretty closely. US Marshal Ben Cowan spends the movie trying to outwit and capture Catlow, but also tries to protect him from Nimoy. Catlow tries to locate lost Confederate gold and is a wild cowboy with a good heart. If you like Louis L'Amour westerns novels, and Yul Brynner westerns then you will enjoy this delightful movie.
