Rough Night in Jericho

Most unusual aspect about this production is offbeat casting of Dean Martin as a heavy without a single redeeming quality. George Peppard is the hero. Both are embroiled in a bloody and violent western.

Most unusual aspect about this production is offbeat casting of Dean Martin as a heavy without a single redeeming quality. George Peppard is the hero. Both are embroiled in a bloody and violent western.

Plotwise, Rough Night in Jericho frequently carries a nebulous story line, particularly in limning the actions of Martin, onetime lawman turned vicious town boss. Screenplay, an adaptation of Marvin H. Albert’s novel The Man in Black, is lacking in the suspense one expects from a big league western but regulation action is there in good measure.

Peppard plays a former deputy US marshal who becomes involved in the affairs of the town of Jericho – and Martin – when he arrives with John McIntire, onetime marshal whom he once served under. Latter has come to help Jean Simmons save her stage line, coveted by Martin, who also wants its femme owner.
