San Antonio

Here's a western in the old, old tradition. In forsaking both social significance and art for this excursion into days of yore, the story-tellers cooked up what might well be some genuine history about the way in which one lone, honest hombre defeated the hordes of evil gathered in San Antonio (Texas) during the middle of last century.

Here’s a western in the old, old tradition. In forsaking both social significance and art for this excursion into days of yore, the story-tellers cooked up what might well be some genuine history about the way in which one lone, honest hombre defeated the hordes of evil gathered in San Antonio (Texas) during the middle of last century.

Errol Flynn looks and acts right handsome as that hero. Paul Kelly and Victor Francen earn their villainous hisses.

Alexis Smith walks through the business beautifully. S.Z. ‘Cuddles’ Sakall is funny as the luscious dame’s manager, and the furniture in that saloon at San Antonio, where the final battle starts, gets smashed with breathtaking thoroughness.
