Trivia

Jack Lambert was an underrated, heavy-type born in Yonkers, NY. He is perhaps best known from an entry from the Dick Tracy serial called "Dick Tracy's Dilemna" (1947) where he plays the part of a quiet, terrifying, hook-wielding killer called "The Claw." This entertaining film can be found on youtube. See more »

Quotes

Chester: Maybe he can... he can beat you, huh? I mean, you don't really think that he can though, do you?
Marshal Matt Dillon: You know the old saying, Chester. There was never a horse that couldn't be rode, never a man that couldn't be throwed.

Lambert at his Squinty-Eyed Best
21 October 2012 | by See all my reviews

Better than average entry, thanks to tricky Meston script and the great Jack Lambert. Here his gunman Kin Creed is meaner than a hungry rattlesnake, with a cruel-eyed squint that's enough to melt a battalion of marines. Sure enough, he wants to build a reputation by gunning down the marshal. But oddly, he's got his own interesting code so you don't quite know what he'll do. But he's an impressive adversary for Matt.

I like the way writer Meston finesses the climax to make it more plausible. After all, it's the very non-professional Chester who does the patching up. All in all, it's an excellent showcase for one of Hollywood's most impressive baddies, along with a few surprises.
