Don Johnson and Barbara Parkins bring glamour to the old west.
3 November 2001 | by (Central Florida) – See all my reviews

This who dunnit set in the old west is enhanced by the beauty of Don Johnson and Barbara Parkins in their youthful prime. Parkins is cast as a prostitute targeted as the next victim of a serial killer. Johnson is a drifter who becomes a hero. Parkins is beautiful. She is one of the most underrated actresses of the 1960s and 70s. Johnson went on to Miami Vice and stardom. The rest of the cast, including Darleen Carr and Jim Davis, do a fine job as well. Although in many ways, this is a routine Western. There is nothing much original in the plot. However, the top-notch cast makes Law of the Land memorable. I think I read somewhere that this movie was a pilot for a proposed series that never took off. Too bad. It is highly watchable and has long been a favorite of mine. It would be nice to see Law of the Land receive a DVD release.
