Storyline

In 1865 in Nevada, former Confederate Captain Ben Lassiter and his daughter Abbey travel through Modoc territory on their way to Oregon. At Fenniman's Station they stop for a meal, a bath and supplies. Inside the way-station, a group of Union soldiers, led by Lieutenant Weeks, are enjoying a meal. The patrol escorts an Army payroll and two sisters to meet another patrol, led by Captain Howard Poole. One of the sisters, Beth Drury, is engaged to Poole. The other sister, Martha Drury, is bitter at having lost her fiance during the American Civil War.

Sly Stallone's dad
2 July 2010 | by See all my reviews

Film was not much more than a watchable western, but see it for a look at Sly's real dad and mom.........Victor Mature and Faith Dommergue. Check closely the contributions each made to Sly's features, you will see what I mean.

Oh, yeah, story was formula hero western and nothing special other than for the long list of western legends like Slim Pickens and Harry Carrey, Jr. and the drama queen antics of Ms. Dommergue. She was surely the film world's best pouter.

Just kidding on the Sly thing, but they sure look like his parents. Maybe I'm wrong about the kidding.
