Review

Our Score
By this stage in his career, Elvis Presley must have been desperate to get away from the fluffy nonsense of his musicals, but he should have chosen a far more convincing alternative than this bungled, would-be "serious" western. The King struggles with his role as a supposedly hard-bitten gunfighter who fights to clear his name when he is set up by his old partners in crime, and the rest of the cast is not remotely convincing either. Presley was better off with the girls, fast cars and songs of the previous year's Speedway.

Summary

Reformed gunslinger Jess Wade is framed by his former cronies for the theft of a jewel-encrusted cannon from the Mexican revolutionary forces. Western, starring Elvis Presley, Ina Balin, Victor French and James B Sikking.
