Delinquent Western
31 December 2013 | by wes-connorsSee all my reviews

In 1987 Wyoming, 1950s-styled young Russ Tamblyn (as Tully Rice) tries to be nice, hard-working and law-abiding. Still, local town-folk antagonize Mr. Tamblyn because his father was a notorious gunslinger. He gets into fights and is run out of town. Tamblyn drifts over to a nearby western community called "Black Crater". There, he re-encounters snuggly-attired Gloria Talbott (as Nora Bowdre), who is the daughter of a notorious gunslinger. They would like to kiss and be nice, law-abiding citizens, but Tamblyn keeps getting into fights with local juvenile delinquent types. This is a confusing mix of the western and rebellious youth genres. The supporting characters blend together, with Scott Marlowe (as Knox Cutler) arguably emerging as the main antagonist. More interesting are old gunslinger Chubby Johnson (as Tom "Ringo" Jones) and grandson Wright King (as Jonesy). The black-and-white photography, by Ellsworth Fredricks, is a plus.

**** The Young Guns (9/16/56) Albert Band ~ Russ Tamblyn, Gloria Talbott, Scott Marlowe, Wright King
