A young man learns about life in this nice tale
13 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Sam Elder has been hitting the bottle instead of taking care of his farm. Banker Hamilton has no other choice but to foreclose on the Elder's farm. Right after leaving the bank, Sam Elder falls out dead all in the front of his 18 year old son Tim. Tim says that it was the banker that killed his father.

Lucas lets Tim work at his farm while he gets on his feet. He even teaches Tim to use a rifle. But the reason Tim wants to learn to shot is to kill the banker to revenge his father's death. But there is something that Tim does not know about John Hamilton.

This was a very entertaining show. Lee Kinsolving does a great job of playing the young man with a chip on his shoulder. He plays the part with a near childlike innocents in some scenes and a revengeful son is others. Good watch.
