A fairly good TV western, worth a look !
6 October 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I remember seeing this on TV the late 70's, and was surprised to see how well it holds up nearly 3 decades later. Although the story of a harassed rancher has been done many times, the casting and writing here were a notch above the ordinary.

Robert Forster was very good here, with great support from Linda Evans. Chuck Connors (of Rifleman fame) was very good in this film... he was a much better actor than most folks realize. Buck Taylor is also featured in this interesting film. Fans of westerns, family drama and outdoor films should really enjoy this one.

The film is available on VHS, but I have yet to see it out on DVD. Check this one out !
