    Your average James Stewart Western, but with some decent little things here and there. Despite his age, James does a surprising bit of brawling and wrangling. I would consider this a superior western than the likes of Night Passagey, but only just.

    Average western with Brian Keith giving a ridiculously over the top performance in what must be the worst red wig ever seen in a movie. Otherwise the stars turn in their usual professional jobs but there is nothing out of the ordinary here.
