Not Worth The Effort
I'm not quite certain what the previous reviewer is referring to regarding the artsy photography angles etc. but he is accurate in stating that this western suffers from a weak, convoluted plot as well as a weak cast, poor dialog, and very undistinguished performances from all present. It is supposed to be a Civil War spy / agent western and it does have a number of twists which must have utterly befuddled the female lead. That is the only explanation I can offer for her performance. Poor John Agar seems to be wandering around as if lost in this head- scratcher as does everyone else. I got very little out of it myself and didn't find it worth the effort. I'm a huge western fan but this one is a (prairie) dog. I gave it a 3 because I do like John Agar but not in this one.
