Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

This routine western programme filler is made interesting not by the presence of star Steve Cochran, but by character actor Leo Gordon who plays the legendary William Quantrill, a Confederate guerilla leader during the American Civil War. The thickset Gordon carved a sterling career in westerns, and also wrote several, including the interesting psychological outing Black Patch for actor George Montgomery. He specialised in playing psychopathic villains, and here, as Quantrill, his talents are given free rein. Just a pity that the film's historical accuracy leaves much to be desired.
