Don't Call the Doc
25 December 2011 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Bret's trying to find three men so he can clear his name with the law. However, in terms of plot, this is just a sidelight. The real conflict is between Doc Holliday (Mohr) and card dealer Stacey (Vivyan) who's one of the men Bret's looking for. Trouble is quick-gun Holliday is also mad at Bret, so Bret's stuck between the proverbial rock and a hard place.

Mohr makes one scary gunman, in my book the entry's best feature. In fact, the outstanding cast is the most interesting part of a rather complex story. Movie buffs will recognize cult figure Marie Windsor as the casino boss. In typical Windsor fashion, she manages to be both commanding and coy, at the same time. Also, Vivyan makes a good foil for both Bret and Holliday. Note too, the sly innuendo between Bret and Cora (Windsor) as they greet a new day.

More a conventional Western than the classic Maverick brand, the narrative still manages some suspense, but is otherwise unexceptional.
