Not wanting to share their newfound wealth or have them discover their plans, the evil siblings decide to eliminate their relatives, just as they had done with an inquisitive forest ranger.

The bandit finds his former partner has become a respected sheriff in California and the man still wishes to eliminate the man he betrayed.
Yuma stars Clint Walker, Barry Sullivan and Slim Pickens this movie is 74 minutes and came out in 1970. Dave Harmon (Clint Walker) is a U.S. Marshal is sent to the territory of Yuma to bring justice to an otherwise lawless land. All previous marshals have been run out of the territory, mainly due to the actions of Arch King, a man who only works by his laws. The new marshal is set up for shooting a man and it appears that King and some U.S. soldiers are involved in the plot. Harmon is forced to defend himself and expose the corruption in Yuma.
Dan Candy’s Law stars Donald Sutherland, Kevin McCarthy and Chief Dan George this movie runs 92 minutes and came out in 1973.

Gone with the West stars James Caan, Sammy Davis Jr and Stephanie Powers this movie runs 92 minutes and came out in 1978. Enlivened by star turns from James Caan and Sammy Davis, Jr. we follow the tale of a not-so-reputable hero, Jud McGraw and a less-than-innocent Indian maid, known as Little Moon. They have both come to the deserted town of Black Miller to settle old scores. Out of the smoldering cinders of the town, love finds a way in this delightful romantic western.
My Opinion: This movie is for the someone who loves western movies and such a wide variety. This is perfect for my dad as he loves western movies and will entertain him for hours.

  1. I love watching old Westerns, especially from the 50s and 60s like Clint Walker as Cheyenne. Hard to believe he's still around, at nearly 90!
