Cumbersome, dull mini-western takes 20 minutes to say nothing...
2 September 2008 | by (U.S.A.) – See all my reviews

On top of a dull, uninspired script, badly acted and poorly directed, the final insult is the print shown on TCM is barely watchable. The Cinecolor photography looks like it was filmed underwater.

The short has Bob McAdams riding into the town of Sunrise and befriending the local sheriff Lon Carter. When Carter's Wells Fargo office is robbed by three of the local henchmen, it's up to McAdams to go gunning after them.

In the meantime, he has a few brief scenes with a leading lady who's just as inept as he is in the acting department.

Totally forgettable mini-western says nothing new, has nothing to offer but bad photography and amateurish performances. Forget about it.
