Complex, But Entertaining
31 January 2014 | by (Claremont,USA) – See all my reviews

Unpredictable little western probably too complex for own good, but keeps audience interest. So what's the true story of the Indian attack and who is this timid Dude guy who turns up mysteriously in town. It's a fine cast of familiar faces. For example, who's better at being amiably shifty-eyed than Jack Carson, as a sheriff who makes up his own rules. So, how far can he be trusted. Then there's ageing matinée hero Bob Steele picking up a paycheck as Carson's deputy, while Lynn Bari also gets a payday for a brief marquee appearance. Look quickly too for Peter Gunn's shapely songbird Lola Albright, unfortunately confined here under a ton of shapeless bedclothes. And, of course, the unmistakable Neville Brand as, surprise, surprise, a bad guy. Fans of scenic westerns can skip this one since the action never leaves the studio. Thus, it's a good thing the story manages to stay cleverly one step ahead of the audience. So, stay tuned.
