great Sammy Davis Jr Performance
1 May 2001 | by Tony RomeSee all my reviews

a fine made for tv western centering on tracker(Sammy Davis Jr) aiding Earnest Borgnine in the search for his missing daughter. Lots of action for western fans, some familiar character actors, and even some comedic moments.
