Fernando Lamas directs himself in this low-budget melodrama taking place in a New Mexico border town where one of three jailed white men is the assailant in a rape case involving a local girl (seems the last word the victim said before losing consciousness was "gringo"). There's the Polish troublemaker (Aldo Ray), the dishonorably discharged soldier (Tommy Sands, with impossibly black hair), and the smart-talking drifter (David Carradine). Deputy sheriff Lamas fears the townspeople will turn into a lynch mob after the victim dies, but all we see are extras running across the street and half-heartedly breaking into the police station. This is the laziest riot in the annals of B-movie cinema! Still, Lamas manages to move the story along, and it's rather enjoyable despite a poor car chase and clichéd dialogue throughout ("You've got a wrap-sheet as long as your arm!"). The location shooting is quite good, despite sloppy editing which repeats some footage, and the acting is solid by each of the principals. ** from ****
