The Duke's kid harassed by Silva and Borgnine
19 November 2010 | by (Williamsburg, VA) – See all my reviews

A young man (John Ethan Wayne) makes the mistake of stopping his newly acquired horses at a watering hole on the land of Ben Robeson (Ernest Borgnine). Robeson and his men claim the horses are theirs and when the kid raises a fuss they have him falsely arrested for theft. After a quick trial, he ends up in a prison run by a strict warden (Henry Silva) and his right hand tough man (Raimund Harmstorf). Naturally, we gets lots of harassment and torture before he breaks out hellbent on clearing his name. Fabrizio De Angelis loved him some Arizona around this time and this plays like a rehearsal for THUNDER WARRIOR II (1987), right down to the car stunts, prison fights and Bo Svenson as the sheriff (I like to think he is the same character in this as the THUNDER WARRIOR flicks). I love that the film ends with the law overlooking all the damage Wayne has caused after he produces a bill of sale showing the horses were his. Wayne has zero personality so he is coasting on looks (and name) here. He also did OPERATION NAM with De Angelis after this. He did get one smile out of me when he is on the phone and tells someone to call him back at 867-5309. That probably flew over the heads of the Italians.
