Henrickson plays Frank Morgan, a notorious and feared gunfighter that has lived his life on the run. His face and eyes reveal a man that has been very much hardened by that life. We quickly learn, however, that there is still passion inside. Upon receiving a telegram from Linda, an old lover (played by Kay Lenz), requesting his presence, he abandons his woman, mounts his horse and rides to Linda without giving it a second thought. Upon arrival, he learns that Linda is now happily married to the owner of the local general store. The only vestige of her past that remains is a daughter, who Frank is surprised to learn is his. The daughter, of course, does not know about Frank.

Great movie!
4 July 2006 | by dirkfallowsSee all my reviews

I really enjoyed this movie. A good story with some great gun play. I've always been a fan of Lance Henriksen and he does a great job here, as usual. Nikki Deloach was great as well, especially considering she was a young actress with little experience when this movie was made. I first bought this movie years ago on VHS. I sold all my VHS movies when I started my DVD collection. I never could find this movie on DVD. The other day I spotted it on DVD, from Platinum. I usually shy away from movies from Platinum. I guess I've always thought of them as lower quality or something since you can buy them for less. I bought this one and it is good quality. No frills though. No extra features on the DVD menu. Not bad since I paid three bucks and change for it.
