Jack Elam and Ray Stricklyn
8 August 2016 | by (Youngstown,Ohio) – See all my reviews

"Helping Hand" finds Johnny Yuma literally caught between a rock and a hard place, a family feud in which he only sought to replenish his water supply. Carl Blaine (Ray Stricklyn) and younger brother Dave (Lee Erickson) have tracked their Uncle Luce (Jack Elam, previously seen in "Angry Town") and cousin Web (Eddie Ryder) for many days, the old man successfully robbing a bank and getting his own brother killed. Yuma realizes too late that Uncle Luce guards the only watering hole for 50 miles, and figures to hold out for his nephews to die of thirst without much trouble. The presence of the crafty rebel proves to be invaluable to the young Blaines, but detrimental to their soulless uncle. Jack Elam was always a welcome sight in any Western, seen here in typical villainous mode.
