| Excellent cast in pretty good story is still pretty slow
Gordon Elliott became Wild Bill Elliott and was generally a good cowboy and generally his name meant an at least pretty good movie.

"The Man from Tumbleweeds" is barely a pretty good movie.

It was populated by some great cowboy performers, and even Dub "Cannonball" Taylor wasn't over the top.

But it was awfully slow.

The story, the premise was a good one, but somehow, despite some very good scenes and some good dialogue, ultimately it was rather lame, even trite.

Everything was fairly predictable, except there was not a final blood-bath as might be expected in a low-budget movie.

If you're a Western fan, you do want to see it, and I hope you like it better than this review might lead you to. It's available in a somewhat out of focus print at YouTube.
