After the Civil War, a black ex-union soldier, his wife, and his son settle in Arizona Territory to homestead and build their lives. At first, Caleb Revers race doesn't seem to matter, but then things change.
Bill Cosby and Robert Culp ("I Spy") are united again as private eyes in this Walter Hill-scripted "film noir." Searching for a missing girl, they find themselves involved with vicious criminals and precipitating a string of deaths.
I rented this movie once and I liked it okay even though it was kind of weird to see Bill Cosby beating people up and trying to play secret agent. The
performances are good for the most part and I really can't say that this was a bad movie other than the plot was a bit slow. Bill Cosby chasing crooks around which is believable because Cosby did run track. The lead role should have
gone to Sidney Poitier because this seemed like his kind of role ever since
playing Virgil Tibbs. Look for Gloria Foster in this movie who plays the Oracle in "The Matrix" movies, she plays a bit part in a couple of scenes. I'd give this movie a try although I trust the other copies of this movie have a better picture quality than the version I saw. The music by Stu Gardner is also good. This is an imaginative movie for the most part, it's not meant to be taken seriously. ***out of ****
