Rancher Sam Christy, with a paralyzed right arm refuses to get involved against them, and Kate Miller calls him a coward. When Jeb kills the timid Sheriff McCauley, Sam goes to his ranch to get his gun. The boys are waiting for him there, and Ellie Walters goes to his ranch and finds him badly beaten up by Mule. The young Davy, shocked by the killing of the sheriff, quarrels with Jeb. He goes off alone and Sam captures him.

Sam and Ella watch as the boy rides ... Written by Les Adams <longhorn1939@suddenlink.net>

The Oldest and the Youngest!!
5 January 2018 | by elo-equipamentosSee all my reviews

Noir western on a fear atmosphere of shadow of ruthelessness against the weakest in name of foolish revenge those didn't has nothing with, psychological plot where shown where can take a group of young men strong together, but didn't nothing if was alone, B wersten which was the last one of Chander in this genre, the young actor Ray Stricklyn as Jeb gang's leader was nominee by Golden Globe Awards as best supporting actor, look at the old drunk man who came together the gang, an interesting character and how he had behavoir changes aftewards!!
