Quotes

Col. Stuart Valois: It will be wonderful to dine instead of to feed. It seems to be the routine when men in a country like this are isolated. I miss the conversation... the eloquence of dining in mixed company.

Doesn't it want to make you up chuka
23 April 2007 | by malcolmgswSee all my reviews

Sorry i could not resist the headline.This Western must have been made on the very cheap because everything seems to be made of balsa wood.Rod Taylor seems to have a six shooter which is as accurate as a snipers rifle and which fires 12 shots for every 6 rounds loaded.John Mills has a look which says"this will pay next years tax bill".What about poor Louis Hayward,i didn't even recognise him.It is little wonder that Westerns were on their way out with efforts like this.It has to be another in the pantheon of those films that are so bad that they are actually very enjoyable.So if it comes your way and you want a good laugh then watch this film
