| more of a cult classic than a B western
This movie is replete with all the tawdry western cliches both verbal and visual but there is a nice spicing of 50s schlock in here like the odd shot that gets telephone poles in it or planes...or te odd extras with a timex watch...but the most glaring gaffe of all is the hero sporting a slick telescopic sighted Remington high power bolt action hunting rifle (a gun which was not made until 1949) in the setting of the old 1880s west...campy in a new way. If ou like cult flicks filled with continuity errors and chronological anomalies this one will keep you entertained
