Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

An evocative title for a minor Universal western, utilising the studio's contract players and existing sets. Vaguely reminiscent of those cowboy adventures that enthralled young audiences at the Saturday morning pictures, it begins with a cleverly directed and remarkably well-staged robbery. The rest isn't bad either, with Jack Lord - a year before he hit the TV big time with Hawaii Five-O - and the ever-excellent James Farentino and Don Galloway (from TV's Ironside) playing a trio of outlaws. Stick with this, it's fun.
