Good Turn from de Kova, Otherwise Average
1 November 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

He may be short, stout and bald (under the wig), but Fred Myers (Harris) is one ruthless character. No wonder his comely wife (Van Zandt) wants to leave him. And when he plays a needless trick on Indian Tobeel (De Kova), he makes a formidable enemy, especially after Myers opens a dress shop with stolen money. Now there's trouble brewing.

The entry manages some suspense, but is more contrived than usual. Maybe I missed something, yet the logic of Myers's return to town in the climax appears murky to me. And why the needlessly insulting letter to the trail boss, which makes the clever Myers appear not just mean but stupidly mean. Anyway, de Kova makes a convincing Indian, as usual, while Van Zandt could pass as Amanda Blakes' younger sister.
