Excuse, please...this is not a movie.

Well, it is sort of...if you count two TV episodes stitched together and released as a feature film to an unsuspecting public unaware of the original source. Those who had TV sets were most likely a bit hacked when they realized they had paid money to see what they had already seen at home for free. The producers of this TV series evidently didn't think America's Good Neighbor Policy applied in countries that didn't get the TV series with Keith Larsen and Buddy Ebsen, so they shipped this out as a "real' movie. Tourneur and George Waggner were not co-directors. Each directed a different episode. Evidently, the editor who stitched this together did a good job on those who didn't notice there were two different storys. Check out Universal's 1946 "Canyon Passage" if you want to see a 'good' western directed by Jacques Tourneur.
