Quotes

Dr. Mason: Gil, doctors take an oath, as well as Sheriffs. And there's a reason for both.
Dr. Mason: One has to do with saving lives - no matter what I think about a man. That's why I told them he has yellow fever.
Dr. Mason: The other binds you to uphold the law, by due process. To protect an accused man against illegal violence no matter what you think of him.
Dr. Mason: It's a principle that's more important than that man, or Nadine, or me, or Nadine.
Dr. Mason: You can't give him to that mob.

pretty good
6 November 2005 | by KyleFurr2See all my reviews

I was surprised about how good this was since Ray Milland didn't star in hardly any westerns and this was the only western he directed. Milland plays a gunfighter who's horse dies in the desert and starts to walk when he comes across a carriage full of dead people and he takes a horse and goes into the nearest town. As soon as gets into town, Milland shoots a deputy who thought he was the killer and the whole town is after him. Milland winds up hiding in the basement of the sheriff and his daughter and the daughter winds up falling in love with him. Ward Bond plays the sheriff who was sick and when he wakes up doesn't know what's going on. It's a good western that isn't very well known.
