If you like westerns you will not be disappointed
Gunsmoke, Audie Murphy plays Reb Kittredge in this 1953 classic western of good versus bad. When land-grabber Matt Telford wants to buy the entire valley there is one land owner that will not sell. So Telford sends for hired gunman, Reb Kittredge, to make sure that the hold-out, Dan Saxon, will not get his cattle to market to pay the mortgage on his farm- the farm that Telford wants to buy.
But when Reb does not get the payment he was seeking, he then teams up with the Saxon and his beautiful daughter Rita (Susan Cabot) to make sure the cattle makes it to market. Reb and his team are going to meet obstacles along the way as Telford hires his own men to stop the cattle-drive.
Even though Audie Murphy was not the most talented actor on the lot, the story plays out well. At the beginning of the movie it was difficult to see Murphy as the outlaw. But as usual the world returns to harmony as Murphy turns from the outlaw ways and embraces a family in need of his help.
Not the most memorable western but one with many good lines and lots of action. A movie that a western lover will not quickly forget.
Audie won’t bother the mice
