Run Of The Mill Western, But Still Enjoyable
9 November 2006 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Cheyenne working as a deputy for U.S. Marshal Merrick, helps to prevent Pop Keith being lynched for a murder he says he did not commit.

The lawmen then take Pop on a long journey to stand trial, picking up his daughter Mary along the way. The murdered man's father, Ed Roden Snr, the instigator of the lynching, will not let things rest until his son's killing is avenged and tracks the small band looking for any opportune moment to get even.

When the Marshal is fatally wounded, Cheyenne promises him that he would make sure that the old man stands trial, although he believes that Pop is innocent.

Does Pop make it to trial? Well, Cheyenne certainly has some problems along the way, one of them being Mary played by attractive Warner Bros starlet Diane Brewster, who tries to wind her way into our hero's heart.

Clint Walker as always, has the charisma to make the most ordinary movie watchable with his laid back style and powerful on screen presence.
