Storyline

Drifter Sam Bass shows up in Denton, Texas (soon to host a great horse race) looking for work. Before long, he attracts the attention of pretty storekeeper Katherine Egan (the sheriff's sister) and that wild frontiers woman, Calamity Jane. Circumstances make Sam richer by a very fast race horse. But his seemingly good luck with horses and women leads him to disaster. Will he be forced into a life of crime?

Quotes

[Sam Bass and friends have just held up a stagecoach and removed only part of the money from the strong box]
Joel Collins: Well, we could've had our ranch out of that box.
Sam Bass: No, we couldn't, Joel. The way we did it, even if this thing comes out, people will know that we took back only what he stole from us. They'll be on our side.
Dakota: Sure, we wouldn't want 'em to think we robbed this stage dishonestly.

a western like many others
23 October 2013 | by VincentiuSee all my reviews

it has all pieces of a classic western. and a lot of clichés. but this is not a problem if it can be more than a poor old recipes result. the presence of Yvone De Carlo and Dorothy Hart is only aesthetic. the characters are sketches of good intentions. and the legendary Calamity Jane remains an empty puppet. Howard Duff does a role without salt, the good guy who takes fundamental decisions is a thin shadow of a really hero. that is all. a film with flavor of a period sensitivity. common, pink and naive, moral lesson and nothing more, scene for old fashion stars, it has the heroic aura who gives taste for memories or it is window for a first image of a lost world.
