I know it's not the same without the thunder of hoofbeats and swelling music, but damn is this movie ever in Cinemascope.

Out now on DVD...buy one for yourself and five for your friends.

Fever dream western. If only Bab's had a better supporting cast.

True...although you gotta love Hank Worden. And I don't mind Barry Sullivan. My other choice was that shot of the gorgeous gunsmith down the rifled gun barrel, predating James Bond by a few years.

You're right, I'll take Hank any day. Sullivan's walk-off is also a classic. He was OK in this one.
