rare ,colorful chapter of the old west
14 May 2006 | by grubstaker58See all my reviews

I happen too see this wonderful film by chance, some years ago, on Encore's Western channel.It's a fine, vivid telling of the Anglo encroachment into mid 1800"s California. Rick Jason is exceptional as the son of a recently murdered Spainish land baron, who is thrust into the forefront of trying to protect what has been his family's land for generations ,against the white settlers who move in now and answer questions later .Brian Keith, in one of his fine low key performances, plays a man who(gets things done), for the Anglo powers that be,but decides to think for himself after being befriended by Jason's character.The rest of the cast is stellar as well as the writing ,direction, music and the glorious color photography. This is a rare gem, not many U.S. films like it...if any.
