Storyline

Clay Lomax, a bank robber, gets out of jail after an 8 year sentence. He is looking after Sam Foley, the man who betrayed him. Knowing that, Foley hires three men to pay attention of Clay's steps. The things get complicated when Lomax, waiting to receive some money from his ex-lover, gets only the notice of her death and an 8 year old girl, sometimes very annoying, presumed to be his daughter.

Gunplay and revenge along with a fraternal story
27 February 2007 | by See all my reviews

This film from a novel titled ¨The last cowboys¨and adapted by Marguerite Roberts¨(True grit) deals about Clay Lomax(Gregory Peck),he leaves the prison and is looking for vengeance of his former partner named Foley(James Gregory) who doublecrossed him .He carries the revenge in his heart after seeing the treason.He embarks on his vendetta and during his quest he gets stuck an eight years old little girl.Foley contracts to young gunfighter(a violent,savage Robert F.Lions)who along with others gunmen(Pepe Serna and John Davis Chandler)They abduct a prostitute(Susan Tyrell) and after they are going out the chase Lomax.

An average Western revenge story is plenty of violence,shoot'em up though the veteran director Hathaway is uninspired and the ending is pretty predictable.The film relies heavily about the continuous relationship between the tired gunslinger and the orphaned girl.The picture is well played by Gregory Peck in one of his last Western(McKenna gold,Big country,Stalking moon,The gunfighter).The movie displays a wide plethora of secondary actors usually seen in Western genre: Jeff Corey(True grit) as an old brawler in wheel chair,the usual Arthur Hunnicutt(El Dorado),Paul Fix,Rita Gam(Tomahawk),Willis Bouchey and the habitual cocky nasty named John Davis Chandler.Evocative and imaginative musical score by Dave Grusin .The motion picture is regularly directed by Henry Hathaway in his last film along with ¨Raid on Rommel¨both in 1971.He was an excellent filmmaker who directed several classic Western as True grit,Sons of Katie Elder,Nevada Smith,Rawhide,How the west was won(also with Gregory Peck)among others.The film will like to Gregory Peck fans.
