TBS is the second of six early black and white 50 - 60 minutes long Westerns, that helped launch the career of John Wayne. In those six movies The Duke is always accompanied by his horse - Duke.

What can I say, it is dumb and funny in its own way. The plot is thin as air, predictable as a Big Mac and linear as a straight line. The Mexicans are portrayed as good guys, and their leader provides a certain dose of comic relief, in that early naive way. As a matter of fact, they're more interesting than the Duke himself (the real one, the horse actually has a couple of nice moves).

Interesting, nothing more I'm afraid. Check it out if you get the chance, but don't expect much.

interesting for Western aficionados / 10

No matter how cleverly you sneak up on a mirror, the reflection always looks you straight in the eye.
