Robby Benson Leans to Shoot
3 September 2012 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

Fifteen-year-old Robby Benson (as Jory Walden) rides into a western town with his father, looking for a place to settle down. Dropping by the local saloon, young Benson witnesses a murder. Consequently, Benson needs to leave town. He joins cattle driver John Marley (as Roy Starr) and his quick-drawing sidekick B.J. Thomas (as Jocko). After being taught to handle a gun by Mr. Thomas, Benson and the company attract trigger-happy outlaws. Quickly becoming one of the fastest guns in the west, Benson is hired to look after nubile blonde teenager Linda Purl (as Amy Barron)...

The person who hires Benson to guard Ms. Purl's body is her own father. Given the kids' mutual attraction, the man has to be the most permissive Dad in the west. He sends them off riding together; then Purl, who has been eying Benson from the start, decides to go skinny-dipping. Benson sees it all. We don't. This strange film features some warmly lighted and photographed (by George Stahl) location scenes. Popular singer B.J. Thomas has a good screen presence and is most appealing in his rare acting role. Surprisingly, Curtis Young sings the moody ending song "Jory" instead of Thomas.

***** Jory (2/17/73) Jorge Fons ~ Robby Benson, John Marley, B.J. Thomas, Linda Purl
