| Rational Necessity Dictates
Like so many action stars of the second rank Rory Calhoun left for Europe to continue his career. Finger On The Trigger is his experiment with the spaghetti western. Unlike many he graduated into character roles in the Seventies and would be doing those for the rest of his life.

Nothing terribly original about this plot. Calhoun leads a disparate band of ex-Union soldiers going west after Appomattox to take advantage of the Homestead Act. In doing so he runs into some Confederates, some who know the war is over and are looking to rob some Confederate gold coming in from the west. I think we saw this in Virginia City.

The foe here is Indians and some renegades from Calhoun's bunch. The Confederates may not like the fact that the war is over, but rational necessity dictates an alliance against the Indians.

I'm not a big fan of spaghetti westerns because westerns are better done here in the USA where it's part of our heritage. Calhoun in the Sixties did some decent westerns for A.C. Lyles and others on this side of the pond. Finger On The Triggr isn't one of them.
