Unappreciated and underestimated western
26 January 2017 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Old Scottish bank robber and young 'half breed' accomplice on the run after the former mistakenly killed (only meant to wound) person during the bank robbery.

Determined and ornery lawman goes after them with the help of a friend.

Older bank robber is injured when the friend takes a very long range shot at him with his Sharps 'buffalo' rifle (also see 'Valdez is Coming' for more Sharps action).

Anyway the other reviews do a good job summarising the rest of the film.

Highlights for me: - Peck's Scottish accent is quite good, no surprise as he was brought up by his grandmother who was Scottish. - long range Sharps action - lawman treating his friend poorly, his friend can't believe it... - lawman tussling with some unsaid contradictions he has to consider - Indian is a good guy (pity he was not played by a first nation actor still it was 1974).

Do watch it and reflect on some of the odd moments and interactions.
