Preachy script for the actors
25 September 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Thick message drama would be a tough sit without Drury, McClure, earnest Tim Matheson and Charles Robinson as the brave with no battles to fight. Princeton grad Robinson gives a scrupulous performance that captures the spiritual essence of his character, and he even cuts a mean ceremonial dance. The rest of the actors labor under a coarse script that concocts a small western town populated almost exclusively by lynch-happy racists. Chipper Henry Jones is reduced to playing a crude heavy, and the normally capable Charles Aidman is insufferable as a windy barfly with no visible means of support who never runs out of whiskey money or hot air.
