Jody Deakes joins up with his father after many years, only to discover that his dad is part of an outlaw gang on the run from a relentless bounty hunter named Santee. Jody is orphaned soon after Santee catches up to the gang, and follows Santee in hopes of taking vengeance for his father's death. Instead, however, Jody discovers that Santee is a good and loving man, tormented by the death of his young son at the hands of another outlaw gang. Santee and his wife take Jody in and a father-son relationship begins to grow. Then the gang that killed Santee's son shows up. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Trivia

In 1972-73, Edward Platt ("The Chief" in Get Smart (1965)) raised enough money to produce this film, which was one of the first independent color movies shot entirely on videotape. Platt saw the many advantages of using videotape rather than film, and his crew shot the production with portable TV cameras (Norelco PCP-70 NTSC analog television system and the Philips PC-70 studio color camera) along with the Ampex VR-3000 two-inch portable video tape recorder). Once completed, the images were transferred to 35mm film format for it's theatrical release. See more »

Quotes

Santee: Well, do you want to come along and see to their rights? They'll get a preacher, and a prayer, and a pine box, all at county expenses, if it means anything to you.

Your basic western, made memorable by the late Silverheels
31 October 2002 | by funkyfrySee all my reviews

Thoroughly mediocre Ford vehicle has him as the West's toughest bounty hunter (?!?). He lets the son of the guy he just killed follow him around, then eventually gives him a job. The son gives up his plans for revenge, opting to become a bounty hunter himself instead. Wynter is given a role that is thankless window dressing, and Silverheels is the only person in the movie who looks in shape for the West. Some good action, and it was good to see Silverheels in a movie again (though his part was fairly small), but bare plot goes on too long for its own good.
