Dane Clark in a western?!
15 January 2014 | by MartinHaferSee all my reviews

Nate Blaine (Dane Clark) has been gone for many years--so long that his son doesn't even know he's alive. At first, his sister-in-law wants Nate to stay away and let her raise the boy in peace but she relents when Nate appears to be trying, in his way, of turning over a new leaf. However, later after Nate teaches his son the ways of an outlaw, the aunt is so worried that she lies following a robbery--saying she saw Blaine commit the crime when he really didn't. Blaine escapes and the boy grows up in the shadow of his father's criminal ways.

Dane Clark was a very good actor--even though he's not commonly remembered today. I always remember him as the guy who looks an awful lot like Richard Conte--and, like Conte, excelled in contemporary films--especially crime films. However, very oddly, here Clark is playing, along with his Brooklyn accent, in a western--a genre for which he certainly is not well known--and after watching this film, I can understand why. It isn't that Clark is bad--he's actually pretty good. The problem is the film itself--much of it (especially the son's motivation) isn't all that good. The son's transition from lawman to criminal is so abrupt and ridiculous that it severely impacted the film. I also was annoying with the climactic fight on the stage coach--the baddie had a gun and neither did Nate or his son--yet the baddie fights them with his fists. If he's bad, then he'd shoot...unless he was very, very stupid! A time-passer at best.
