| Fine western, well-acted
Hollywood would have us imagine the western migration as an all-white experience. This picture tells the story with black actors, although facing the same menace they flee, racism. The antagonists are a gang of "night-riders" both hunting Buck, but also terrorizing the black wagon-train.

My main complaint is a terribly annoying, invasive soundtrack, featuring a Jew's Harp of all things. (Like blues harmonica, a little goes a long way!)
