Title: The Duel at Silver Creek (1952)

Rather unoriginal, it could have been shot 20 years before, only difference being the technicolor. Only good thing is Susan Cabot (picked up because she was shorter than Murphy, I guess); rather annoying the fact that Marvin wasn't given the role of Johnny Sombrero: he's good , but not memorable. 5\10

Action scenes are very good in the best dynamic Siegel style. And the portrait of the Sheriff is for a 50s western a bit unusual (almost a parody).

Otherwise a routine western, but enjoyable. Also 5/10
