fantastic western. richard boone and tony franciosa are superb.
- Mike Amato
A great movie. I saw it as a kid when it came out at the movies and have seen it dozens of times. Richard Boone is a classic in this role. Vito Scotti superb as the mexican villian. He was a great character actor. Boone was at his best. Also check Boone out in Hombre.
This movie had a great opening musical score that really moved the action. Richard Boone's blood feud with the Apache and all the side plots propel this movie at top speed. Non-stop action, interesting characters, especially Edmond O'Brian's performance as Pardee. Who will ever forget seeing the southern style plantation transported to the southwest in the middle of nowhere, and when you are led through the front door by the camera to see what is behind the beautiful facade, a great scene. This film is heads above most of the westerns generated at this time. In fact, the upcoming revolution of Leone's spaghetti western era brought that zest back to the western it needed. Rio Conchos with the vivid musical score, the rough fast action was a vision of thins to come. Film may have had more of an impact than it is given credit for.
One of my all time favorites! Richard Boone is simply fantastic - he was under-rated and under used as an actor. And the performance of Anthony Franciosa is almost second to none as a bad guy, from lovable at the beginning to getting "his" at the end. Would that this movie was on dvd - it would be my very next purchase.
