Decent western, based on early days of Tom Horn
22 October 1998 | by buxSee all my reviews

Yet another western, based on the Tom Horn legend, this one focuses on the early days, before he supposedly turned 'bad.' Montgomery is acceptable as the detective sent to bring in counterfeiters, Windsor the dance hall girl who leads the way.
