The sheriff is losing his nerve at the wrong time
25 March 2007 | by drystyxSee all my reviews

Screen legend Don Murray (Shake Hands With the Devil, Viking Queen) gets away from his peace loving hero persona and plays a sheriff who is living on a reputation, but now he has a wife and home, and everything to lose. That includes his nerves. A young upstart comes into town and tries to take his job away from him. But Murray has one companion who won't ever betray him, John Saxon, a half Native American who is Murray's best friend. The man who really leads the town council, another screen legend, Edmond O'Brien (DOA,Warpath), slowly takes the young squirt seriously, especially when Cole Younger is spotted near town, and Murray loses his nerve. In one instant, Murray goes from hero to laughing stock and is about to lose everything. So what can he do? Harrison Ford is supposed to be in this, but I don't know where. A classic Western with top stars. Why it's never on AMC is beyond me.
