The kind of movies they made in the 70s when the 30s were the good old days, filled with genuine actor stars and wonderful character actors, who could take a good script and make it into a memorable film.
Very rare James Stewart western which is well worth seeing. Use to be on telly a lot. Best quote is 'If thy right eye offend thy....pluck it out'!!! I just remember it was mad....and James Stewart was memorizing. Couldn't find this anywhere.....maybe because i knew it by it's 'other' title - 'The Dynamite man from Glory jail'.
The role is a graceful one for an ageing James Stewart and he fits the lead role well in a western narrative set in more modern times. The intriguing aspect of the movie is the odd all-ages mix of supporting actors. It is not detrimental though.
What can I say, its a mature James Stewart in what is actually a really good movie. Stewart plays an ex prison inmate who gets out after 40 years of being inside. Getting out the same time as his 2 friends. What we have here is a movie with everything, a love story, stereotypes and dynamite! James Stewart truly is the man who only went in the bank to cash a cheque!
