Above-average TV Western
24 June 2001 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

Ernest Borgnine does a marvelous job of establishing the character of dried-out Marshal Sam Hill in this failed pilot. The vehicle holds up better than its timing as Westerns were being phased out just as this was completed. Nevertheless, a veteran cast brings wit and believability to a bizarre situation. And, the script is well-above average for a TV-movie. Worth watching.
