Storyline

Duell McCall is a drifter turned cowboy. His latest job is delivering a herd of cattle to a Western town. Duell intends to get paid by the cattle company and move on. Once in town, Duell runs into an old friend, Sally, who works as a prostitute at Madam Mona Lisa's cat-house. He promises to see her after he gets paid. The cattle company and many other company-owned local businesses are policed by company man Ballard, right-hand man Bede and their gang of thugs. With the weak local sheriff, John Whaley, in company's pocket, the law in town is more or less enforced by company man Ballard. After he gets paid, Duell McCall has a first run-in with company man Bede, in the saloon, during a crooked card game. Town boss, Ballard, intervenes and offers Duell an enforcer job on his team but Duell refuses. Later-on, Duell meets local farmer Malloy and his pretty daughter Nora. They are involved in a feud with the company, because they refuse to sell their land to the company. Duell and Nora fall... Written by nufs68

Masterfully fun. I went from laughing to crying to cheering. Don't miss this bronco.
30 December 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I am not much of a communicator but I hope to share what a thrill this movie is. I haven't seen the movie in I guess 20 years or so but I still get a thrill remembering it.. From the Desperado theme to Duell's smile to Nora's passion for her man...it is one wild ride from beginning to end. Heart retching makes your heart-ache Romance, intrigue, comedy I cannot convey the passion in this play. I just can't do it justice. One theme of the Westerns I love and admire is strong men and the strong women they love.... Although it is Duell's movie Nora comes on strong with quite a blast It's rock and roll with the beauty of ballet. Although I love our friends in Canada don't let some disgruntled Canadian dissuade you from this great fun. This movie is not to be missed.
