Storyline

Captain Hayes of the mighty law enforcement squad named the Texas Rangers reached the pinnacle of his career when he captured the notorious John Henry, an outlaw cowboy, and put him behind bars. Twenty years later, upon his release, Henry is older but unrepentant. Within six hours after leaving his jail cell, he evens the score with Hayes by holding up the Bank of Texas for $20,000 in gold. Hayes, in his fury, gets himself out of retirement to take up the chase once more. Written by Echo Bridge Home Entertainment

Old Timer's Comedy Western
29 August 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This film starts off with John Henry Lee, (Willie Nelsen) trying to rob a train of its gold and he is caught by Capt. Owen Hayes, (Richard Widmark) who was an old friend of John Henry, but they had a difference of feelings over a woman named Maggie Hayes, (Angie Dickinson). John Henry is sent to prison for twenty-years and as soon as he gets out, he rounds up some of his old old time gang and is bound and determined to rob a bank and maybe another train. The film goes around and around in circles with old time actors like Nash Crawford, (Chuck Connors) and many more who all have their own story to tell, and sometimes it is very boring. The only person in this film that seemed to keep their looks was Angie Dickinson and she played a very brief role.
