    It's worth watching just to see Walter Matthau in his film debut as the mean bartender who's a genius with a bullwhip & the scene where he takes on an unarmed Lancaster was the best part of the movie.Other then that, It was just so so

    You have to love Lancaster. He was and will always be a great actor. This one was a little timid but still a great westren.
