Released from prison after 18 years, notorious gunslinger 'Killer' Cain is a peaceful reformed man but the Old West has died and he cannot adapt to the modern West where some unpaid moral debts and old troubles resurface.
Quirt Evans, an all round bad guy, is nursed back to health and sought after by Penelope Worth, a Quaker girl. He eventually finds himself having to choose between his world and the world Penelope lives in.
The bounty hunter Kincaid (Clint Walker)... Two rival bounty hunters are after the same killer, but find they have to join together to fight off his gang.
Directed by John Llewellyn Moxey, who worked mostly in TV (including a slew of "Magnum PI" episodes.
The Fortune 5 DVD is apparently a VHS transfer, with lots of jumping frames and "snow". When it is clear, the picture is really good, but a decent transfer should not have any snow or jumps, obviously. Besides convenience, this DVD offers no improvements from a worn-out VHS.
Nice "Bounty Man" theme song (from some band called The Orphanage), and even Margot Kidder makes a guest appearance. That is some pretty decent star power for a forgotten, unknown western... not saying it makes the film worth watching, but still it is at least one face you will recognize.
This film had a difficult time holding my interest. It is not nearly as satisfying as the other western in the Grindhouse Experience collection, "Go Kill and Come Back".
