Captain Hayes of the Texas Rangers reached the pinnacle of his career when he captured the notorious John Henry, an outlaw cowboy, and put him behind bars. Twenty years later, upon his release, Henry is older, but unrepentant. Within six hours after leaving his jail cell, he evens the score with Hayes by holding up the Bank of Texas for twenty thousand dollars in gold. Hayes, in his fury, gets himself out of retirement to take up the chase once more.

This is a remake of "The Over-the-Hill Gang." It is pretty well done. Willie Nelson got the lead and he's got some nice pearls of wisdom. Richard Widmark is kinda blind to the long term. His goal is solely to put Willie back in prison. Depending on your point of view, either one can be rated as better than the other. Unfortunately, Jack Elam didn't get to do any of his usual scene stealing. See more
Texas never had a "territorial prison" because Texas was never a territory. Unlike nearly every other state, Texas was an independent sovereign republic, and became part of the United States of America after a treaty was negotiated between the two nations (i.e., the Republic of Texas and the United States of America).
