| The worst...
I love a good western but this one is not it. Slow moving with a robot performance by Alan Ladd. Do not waste 90 minutes of your life watching 2 bad guys (dressed in black of course) kill good people, control the entire cattle business, burn down a fledgling town while Alan Ladd is always calm and never around when you need him. When this was over all I could think of was where were all of the Civil War vets living out west? I am sure two bad cowboys running amok would not have had all of them cowering behind little Alan Ladd...Pathetic waste of time.
