Super singer but not an actor
9 January 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Marty Robbins was a great singer who was gifted with one of the greatest voices to ever grace any kind of music. He made a few films but most are just vehicles for his singing. This has him in a western role and is O.K. as long as you don't expect 'Shane' 'High Noon' or 'The Wild Bunch.' It was made in the 70's when sadly the western was in decline and would have probably gone down better in the 40's or 50's. Decidedly better than his other western movie 'Ballad of a Gunfighter'which must have had a budget of about 30 dollars and probably took as much at the box office. Marty's fans however will treasure having any movie by their man.
