lust for gold
In the shade of Beat the devil this low budget film would have deserved a better luck. Two convicts head to a small village to take the gold they hid before they were imprisoned. But another ex-con is there to search for the gold. Things get more complicated as a group of bounty hunter Indians go after them. The cast is nice, specially Broderick Crawford and José Nieto as the fugitives and Don Murray is fine as Kid Rodelo, and the film is correctly done (director -actor Richard Carlson does it nice) but the film suffers from a poor characters description (Janet Leigh has not much to do) and a lack of ambition, resulting in a minor work. It is a pity, since with some changes (including the use of color and more developed script) it would have improved a lot.
