WILL PENNY-Released by Paramount Pictures. Running Time: 112 minutes.
MPAA Rating: "M"-Mature Audiences-Parental Guidance Suggested.(For
scenes of Western Violence and Strong Language). Released: 1968.

-One of the best adult Westerns made to date and one of the more mature Westerns to come out of the 1960's,comes writer-director Tom Gries(who was most known for his television work for TV shows like The Rat Patrol)casts Charlton Heston(in one of the greatest roles in his career,and also he quoted as one of his favorite films)in the title role of a cowboy who patrols for trespassers and rustlers on a huge ranch,who protects two uninvited visitors,a mother and her son from vicious outlaws in 1880's Montana. Gries' son Jon Gries,aka Jon Francis plays the boy while actress Joan Hackett portrays his mother who protects her son from the vicious outlaws(Donald Pleasence,
Bruce Dern and Lee Majors). The film was very good in bring a more darker side of ranch life in the Old West. Excellent character study in one of Charlton Heston's best roles.

A really interesting western starring Charlton Heston. This movie stands out as one of the few that Heston did not overact in. The rich supporting cast is good also.

A great western with an excellent performance from Charlton Heston that deserves to be more well known.

This is an okay Western. Very slow paced. Donald Pleasance is creepy as the preacher.

Charlton Heston tries his game best as an aging cowhand struggling in a rough climate, but the plain truth is that he's dragged down by terrible acting (Lee Majors in a sidekick role and Heston's own stylized wooden delivery) and TV movie-level scoring and direction. Only Donald Pleasance takes full advantage of his part as a gleeful and bloodthirsty preacher. This seems like a missed opportunity not an unheralded gem (as some would have it).

Surprisingly good western, and even more surprising is Charleton Heston's performance - He is actually good! Joan Hackett gives an equally good performance. A gentle story, very moving. Nicely paced, not too long, and it has a good feel about it. A much better than average western.
