Wild Bill vs. the rebels !
26 August 2006 | by revdrcacSee all my reviews

Wild Bill Elliott was one of the best of the B-western stars. This 1953 film, one of his last, is solid entertainment with an interesting plot. Bill Elliott comes hunting for the killers of his Dad, finding that Southern sympathizers known as "Copperheads" are the likely culprits.

While this later film in Elliott's career is not his best, it does offer the same well-paced entertainment that he was famous for. This film came along during the final days of the B-westerns and suffers from so-so casting and lower production values. Even so, it is better than 75% of the contemporary films of the genre. Enjoy, but check out his earlier films as well !
