Low quality remake of a better film
4 February 2005 | by robin-moss2See all my reviews

This movie is so uninspired that it has only two points of interest. First, it is an unacknowledged remake of the much better 1948 movie "Black Bart". Second, the female lead is played by Melodie Johnson who made a few films and then quit movies. I believe she now writes crime novels and is highly regarded. Melodie Johnson is an interesting actress because she had that rare gift of being able to change her appearance completely. (More famous actors with this gift are Alec Guinness and Peter Sellers.) The Melodie Johnson in this movie is unrecognisable from the voluptuous blonde with the plunging cleavage in "Gaily, Gaily", has no similarity with the bimbo who romped in the bath with Clint Eastwood in "Coogan's Bluff", and has nothing in common with the subdued country girl in "The Moonshine War" who offers herself to Patrick McGoohan (and is turned down!!!).

The only reason to watch this feeble movie is to compare Melodie's Johnson's appearance and performance with those in her other films.
