Brief Synopsis – A gunfighter poses as the long lost son of a wealthy cattle rancher in order to inherit a fortune.
My Take on it – Intriguing idea that moves a bit too slow for its own good.
Alan Ladd is a great actor and does a nice job here even if the story doesn’t manage to be as powerful as could be.
The idea of trying to convince someone that their long lost son has returned is done well even if things area a bit too simplistic.
The story tries to get over complicated with numerous factions popping up in order to try and make a claim of their own for this fortune, but overall, they still do a nice job with what they have.
The film has some nicely filmed action scenes, most notably the one with the stampede which can be seen as being quite thrilling due to the supposed proximity of the characters to these stampeding animals.
The supporting cats is also great with Charles Bickford, Robert Keith, Tom Tully, Mona Freeman and Peter Hansen helping to keep things moving along.
The love story aspect isn’t really necessary to the plot, but I still understand why they added it to the story regardless.
MovieRob’s Favorite Trivia – Film debut of Peter Hansen. (From IMDB)
Rating – BAFTA Worthy (5/10)
