Let's You and Him Have a Shootout
6 April 2010 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Paladin is hired by beauteous Allison as a stand-in for her aged, headstrong father in a so- called duel of honor.

It's a clever script with a number of good lines. But it's also a pointed screenplay in its rejection of honor code dueling, a New World import from Napoleonic France. Scarcely an opportunity to mock the rules is passed up—note how Paladin stalks off in the final frame after delivering a final blast. I'm not sure why the screenwriter takes such a strident position on what can be viewed as an obsolete subject. Nonetheless, the subtext remains pretty clear.

That opening hotel room scene is a clever turning-of-the-tables on the seduction minded Paladin. Also, I like the way the two instigators, Windom and Beckley, are ready to bury the hatchet in one scene. The trouble is the duel has taken on a life of its own that ironically overrides the two who started it. Anyway, there's some suspense in what form the duel will take, especially after Coburn turns up. With his wolfish looks and direct manner, you know he's ready for bigger things. All in all, it's an interesting, if not exactly memorable, entry.
