With all due regards it wasn't nearly that bad Henry! So lighten up.
23 June 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Gary Cooper indeed. It's a Western Filmed in Tucson on the Old Tucson Movie Set. It's got its own sense of style to it that works. There's a plot that can be followed, although its somewhat predictable. But it was worth the watch. Believe Me, I've seen My share of stinkers & this one doesn't smell that bad. So for You to bash it makes no sense to Me. Why not let people decide for themselves? There's several classic Actors in this Movie. And Henry just so You'll know, Gary Cooper doesn't make Movies anymore because He's Dead! IMDb Says that My Review has to be longer, & that I'm not supposed to pad this. But the problem is they don't appreciate brevity. I said all I needed or wanted to say already! You can't force people to write more than what they wanted or needed to say. That's just not right!
