Nice time passer
13 November 2005 | by mickyaSee all my reviews

I saw this on the Western Channel this Sunday morning. Never heard of this one before so I thought I'd watch it for awhile. As it turns out, I watched the whole thing before I finished my pot of coffee! Quick, sturdy little western.

I was surprised to see it was filmed in color and was amazed at how sharp the color was 48 years later.

The length of the movie was just right, about an hour and ten minutes. A little longer and the padding would have shown. The action scenes and script were somewhat clichéd ("It's just a flesh wound"--where have I heard that one before?), but I enjoyed it as the pace was crisp.

Philip Carey has had a long career on the "One Life to Live" soap opera, Andrew Duggan had a steady stream of guest starring roles on TV along with the lead on "Lancer", and, of course, Jay Silverheels was Tonto, so the cast wasn't completely obscure. The boy who played David, Christopher Olsen, is the brother of Susan Olsen (Cindy on the "Brady Bunch").

Not a bad way to pass the time on a Sunday morning. Now it is time to rake the leaves.
