Brother against brother in old Arizona Territory.
12 February 2001 | by michaelRokeefeSee all my reviews

Very familiar western plot, but well worth watching. Two young brothers witness the hanging of their father and are forced to grow up on their own. One becomes a sheriff and of course the other an outlaw. Good enough to keep your interest.

Cast includes Forrest Tucker, Mark Stevens, Gale Robbins and Bill Henry.
