A rootin', tootin' cowboy with a slightly different slant!
25 March 2005 | by lindac-5See all my reviews

This is a fun Western with a slightly different story line. It has a good-goody (Richard Denning) and a real-bad baddie (Gerald Mohr) but the baddie is the guy who loves the Buckskin Lady. Watch out for the raunchy bedroom scene which almost ends in laughter but Mr Mohr changes the laughter into something else entirely! Nice piece of acting that recovered the scene from a retake to a save and print! Some nice fight scenes, too. Watch out for the publicity picture of Gerald Mohr on e-Bay - a very clever photo which actually reveals the ending to those of us lucky enough to have seen this little gem - and, yet again, the superb Mr Mohr bites the dust at the end!
