The Culpepper Cattle Co. is an unsuccessful attempt to mount a poetic and stylistic ballet of death in the environment of a period western. Gary Grimes is featured as a teenager who matures in the course of a hard, violent and bloody cattle drive.

Director Dick Richards’ story has been scripted into a pallid, stilted plot, where the characters mutter and grunt empty aphorisms. Clearly, we have here one of those ‘important-statement-on-the-human-condition’ rationalizations for a gruesome series of blood-lettings.

Billy ‘Green’ Bush plays Culpepper, hard-bitten range boss who takes on Grimes, whose likeable, easy-going and natural manner come across as the only effective performance. Everyone else is saddled with limp dialog and unrestrained posturing. Lots of people are killed.
