In the small western town Vinegarroon the conflict between cattle and sheep breeders escalates. When a stranger appears in the town, the ranchers suspect he’s a gun man, hired by the sheep breeders. But Jim Killian turns out to be a priest – a tough one however, who soon shall make unscrupulous rancher Esa Beck’s life quite harder.
Excellent western–fine acting performances
Glenn Ford turns in a fine performance, contrary to what some have said. Who better to portray a reluctant hero, a reformed gunfighter/preacher? Clint Eastwood–John Wayne? Don’t be ridiculous. Ford is perfect for the part, just as Clint was perfect for the Man with No Name and Dirty Harry, and the Duke was perfect for the lead role in The Cowboys and True Grit. If you don’t like Glenn Ford, fine. But don’t belittle his acting. I’m a fan of Eastwood and Wayne, but Ford is a better actor than either. David Carradine turns in a top notch acting job also as a villain/foil to Ford as hero. True Western fans will appreciate this film.
This Is A “Must-see” Movie
