Storyline

In the dying days of the Old West, ex-outlaw Handsome Harry Holland is released from prison an old man. Barely recognizable, he heads to Bell City where he only interests children amazed at his gun handling skills. Holland goes for a drink at the saloon where four men are playing cards. One of them , Reggie Bell, is the no good son of the town boss. Reggie is cheating at poker as usual but no one dares speak. Holland joins the game and wins all of Reggie's money who gives an IOU to Holland. Holland tries to cash the IOU at the bank but the corrupt sheriff orders him out of town, at Reggie's orders. Undeterred, Holland forces the bank teller to honor Reggie's IOU but the sheriff prevents him from leaving town with the money. The sheriff draws on Holland who kills him in self-defense. Wounded by the deputies, Holland runs in the local hotel. A stand-off ensues, with Holland stuck in the hotel and the deputies unable to get him. Holland refuses to surrender to a fair trial. In his room, ... Written by nufs68

Great movie, memorable and enjoyable
15 March 2004 | by (Montreal, Canada) – See all my reviews

I fist saw this movie sometime in the mid-eighties back in Saudi, channel 3, although, any nudity was edited out. It left a solid impression on me, particularly some of the quotes by Kirk D. and James C., and the way that rich punk Reggie talked pouring alcohol on the floor "go ahead lick it up, ain't nobody but us watch'in and we don't give a sh*t", to a drunk James C., who replies with a cool deep voice "you piss'in me off Reggie". Also James C.'s shoot out scene with some spanish bandit...spanish dude "senor we are six people with two horsees, and you are 2 peoples with 3 horsees , we would only like to borrow one of your horsees" ...Sherif replies "Go to hell." The Movie is well worth a view, I'd give it a *** out of ****.
