Storyline

Lawman Conny Miller rides into a small dusty town not long after the townsfolk have gunned down the man he's been tracking for four months. He feels like he's wasted that four months and someone bets him $20 he hasn't the nerve to visit the dead man's grave. He takes that bet and has little difficulty going to the grave. Leaving it however proves to be another matter however. Written by garykmcd

Western Ghost Story
28 October 2014 | by (North America) – See all my reviews

Lee Marvin plays lawman Conny Miller, who has spent four months tracking down a wanted man, only to find that he was gunned down and killed by local townsmen. Frustrated at his failure, the locals(played by Strother Martin & James Best) offer him a bet that he isn't brave enough to visit the outlaw's grave that night, since he supposedly issued a curse on Miller. The outlaw's sister also defies and mocks Miller, who takes the bet and will plant his knife on the grave to prove he was there, but his mission ends most unexpectedly... Spooky ghost story set in the old west is well cast, written and directed, creating a most effective spectral nocturnal atmosphere.
