Six Black Horses

Harry Keller (1962)

PG Certificate


Our Score
A determined Joan O'Brien hires Audie Murphy and Dan Duryea to apprehend her husband's killer in this unprepossessing vehicle for Universal's resident baby-faced cowboy star. It's good to see the snarling Duryea in his element, and the plot is unusually seasoned with humour. Sadly, Harry Keller's direction is very ordinary. Look out for veteran cowboy star Bob Steele, perhaps better known today as the killer Canino in The Big Sleep. This film originated as a screenplay written by Burt Kennedy and was intended for Randolph Scott in the series of westerns directed by Budd Boetticher at Columbia.


A tough frontier woman hires two trackers to help her find her husband. However, along the way, she tells one of her guides the real story - her husband has been killed and his travelling companion is the murderer. If he gets rid of his friend, she'll pay him all the money that would have been split between them. Western, starring Joan O'Brien, Audie Murphy, Dan Duryea and George Wallace.
