Storyline

Australian sheep-man Morgan Lane comes to Montana looking for government-owned grazing land, and encamps his sheep at the boundary line (where the bad grazing ends and the good grazing begins) set up by the cattle barons to keep the sheep from nubbing away at the good grass. He goes to town, posing as a merchant, explains his Australian accent, and learns that Maria Singleton, owner of a large ranch, and Rodney Ackroyd (who never explains where he got his name), another ranch owner and Miss Singleton's fiancée, are the leaders of the cattlemen against the sheep-men. Romance tugs at Morgan and Miss Singleton, who quickly decides that Morgan has a much better name than Rodney (and other attributes) but the cattle-vs.-sheep feud keeps them apart. Until they meet in the street for a showdown gunfight following a disastrous clash between the cattle and sheep factions. Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

Terrible screenplay, wordy dialog, annoying sound track
4 September 2014 | by See all my reviews

this is a very primitive western with terrible screenplay, wordy dialog, but most of all, the annoying childish cartoon-like music would drive you crazy. the directing was basic, deadbeat and breathless due to a lifeless screenplay, the acting of all the characters in this boring film were badly affected by the lousy script. when these sheepherders went into the territory of the cattlemen, they didn't pay any attention to the eminent danger, drinking and singing around the camp fire, what a stupid arrangement was that? when the cattlemen attacked them at night, there was only a gun available to fight back, what made the guy think that he could deal with the self-entitled cattlemen in Montana? the childish screenplay then forcefully developed into a more stupid scenario with a gunfight in the tavern, then the guy met a pretty local girl in town that was so predictably boring and so formulaic stupid. do i have to go on and on with the annoying sound track? sorry, no can do.
