Storyline

Reno and Turner are partners who robbed the express in Monterey. But when Turner wants to leave the partnership, Reno shoots him and leaves him for dead. But Turner is found by Maria and nursed back to health. He then searches California for Reno and finds him in Del Ray, running a bar which he got by shooting his partner Abbott. Turner masquerades as York and keeps Reno off balance long enough to trap him. Written by Tony Fontana <tony.fontana@spacebbs.com>

Max Reno: When the tide comes in, you'll be safe as if you were in your mother's arms. I picked this hideout a month ago. It's a beauty, ain't it? You're a lucky boy, Jim. You should have met me a long time ago.
Jay Turner: You'll never let me forget it, Reno...

Sleepwalk at Monterey.
23 November 2013 | by SpikeopathSee all my reviews

Quite often us Western fans will see the cast list of an old 1950s Western and reasonably expect it to at the very least be a time waster. So instantly we (yes it's the Royal we) notice that Sterling Hayden and Lee Van Cleef star in it, and Ted de Corsia on villain duties as well, and feel quite confident. While when you got a title proudly promising a gun battle it's not outrageous to expect maybe just a little bit of bang bang bangery.

That Carl K. Hittlemen's film doesn't deliver any goods is not really his fault, he's a director for hire working with a lazy screenplay and a cast who know it's a lazy screenplay! Cleef escapes criticism, but it's really not a badge of honour to shine in this sea of mediocrity, but he at least makes time spent with the pic tolerable: Just! Come the hopelessly weak finale you are unlikely to care or consider this as being worth another look in some alternate future.

Key word is lazy, so this is an appropriately lazy review. 3/10
