| quite a satisfying western
In the early fifties, I read some comic book stories with Rod Cameron. Later on I saw him in a western, and was always impressed by his cool, quiet, but ready to fight style. I think Clint Eastwood's characters in his westerns has a lot in common with Rod. At the time of Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, etc, Rod was certainly ahead of his times. Panhandle is one of his best , directed by Lesley Selander, who started making westerns in 1936 and could make a B film as best as it could be done. Blake Edwards(of Pink Panther fame) shared the writing of the script, which provides all that you expect from a good western. Blake also plays a very convincing bad guy. Rod is John Sands who goes to a town to find out who killed his brother. He kind of suspects who is the killer, but needs proof. He flirts with two women, Cathy Downs, who sell saddles, and Anne Gwynne who is the secretary of Mat Garson(Reed Hadley), the suspected killer. There are shootouts, quite a fistfight and also poker games. Quite a satisfying western.
