Tim and Chito reap a pistol harvest !
21 July 2006 | by revdrcacSee all my reviews

This excellent 1951 western features the great team of Tim Holt and his Irish-Mexican sidekick Chito Rafferty. Tim is enamored of Felice, whose adopted father has a bank loan stolen by some villainous no-goods. The Banker and his lackies become suspects and the search begins.

Action, chemistry and fine suspense are all present here. Holt handles the action scenes with the best of them and Chito was a happy-go-lucky, believable sidekick. The great heavy Bob Wilke appears as a dastardly villain. What more could any western fan ask for ?

This film is a good example of how good films of this period can be. Worth watching again & again !
