| good western, misleading title
I avoided seeing this film during years because of the title which made me think it was a horror one like "Jesse James meets Frankenstein's daughter". Finally I saw it and liked it. Gordon Douglas is no John Ford but was quite efficient in directing westerns like "Only the Valiant " and "The Great Missouri Raid". Robert Evans' performance was very controversial with the critics, but I think he came out very well. He already proved he was a good actor in "The Sun Also Rises" and here as Felix Griffin he overacts, but then this character must be overacted, that is the only way to play him. Hugh O'Brian is the bad good guy Dan Hardy who has the misfortune of falling into the list of victims of Griffin, who is as cruel and crazy as one can be. There is a lot of suspense, action and once you start watching this western, it will keep you on the edge until the end. It is unfortunate that they chose such a misleading title that must have done a lot of harm at the box office and also not letting the film be as known as it deserved.
