U Certificate


Our Score
Made by Universal's television arm, this western drama stars the forceful Brian Keith as leader of impoverished Texas ranchers whose desperate actions bring them into conflict with the US Army. In a spurious attempt to add interest, the film ropes in Wild Bill Hickok (Robert Culp), Buffalo Bill Cody (James McMullan) and Calamity Jane (Judi Meredith) - a combination suggested by Cecil B DeMille's classic western The Plainsman. Stock action footage from better pictures is crudely inserted and there are too many dull stretches before a tense ambush climax.


Wild West heroes Wild Bill Hickok, Calamity Jane and Buffalo Bill join forces to help ranchers extend a railroad into Texas. Western adventure, starring Robert Culp, Judi Meredith and James McMullan.
