I've been a Western nut for 65 years, this is not a great one.
There was good color and superb scenery (the real reason why an Easterner likes Westerns, anyway) but the story was not all that great. Even old Hopalong Cassidy movies gave us more realistic stories. I taped it off the Digital Channel and was about to abort the effort, when I saw Kate. Cheryl Lawson was one of the prettiest women I've seen in Westerns in ages, way back since the days of Dorothy Malone, Gail Davis and even prettier than Peggy Stewart or Barbara Stanwick (at their best). The real only good thing about this movie was Kate. All she had to do is stand still, where some actresses have to work like the devil to become noticed, like LD in "Citizen Ruth". Well, it's the truth!!
