Storyline

Jonas Trapp falls in love with the beautiful Jessie, a wealthy girl out of his humble class. Against the wishes of her snobbish aunt, she marries him, later faking a pregnancy to win her aunt's consent. But Jonas tires of living off of his wife's family, and eventually deserts her to become a buffalo hunter. 11 years later, with his self-made fortune, he sets out to return home, only to be set upon by three sadistic marauders, who steal his money and leave him for dead. Rescued by a farmer who nurses him back to health, Jonas becomes consumed by the desire for revenge. As fate would have it, all three men live close to Jonas' former home. Matters quickly get worse when Jonas reunites with his wife, only to discover that she is now engaged to Renne. Written by phillindholm

One of the last GREAT westerns made!
23 October 1998 | by buxSee all my reviews

Told in a "double flashback" technique, this is not a 'pretty' western. Conners, in his best ever role is the hunter returning to claim the girl he left behind-10 years ago. There are so many memorable performances here it is hard to start--Akins and his imaginary friend 'Whiskey Man', Gorshin as the see-all ranch hand, and Bixby-well Bixby should have gotten the best supporting Oscar as the conniving dandy with a sado-masochist bent. This one is told in rugged fashion, and has a neat little theme song to go along with it. This is MUST viewing.
