Not Great But Very Watchable
5 September 2019 | by csmith-99615See all my reviews

Like another reviewer said " I'll watch any western ". That fits me to a T. I'm not going to review the plot. Others have done that and like most westerns made in the 50s the plot was fairly simple. I guess what I didn't like about this movie is that a couple of the main characters acted unlike any person would. Meg, engaged to another man, meets Jesse and after 10 minutes is sure she's in love with him and not her fiance. Bert, refuses to believe his half brother is no good even after eye witness ' say he robbed a stage and shot the guard. Things like this ruin a movie for me, even a 50s western
