Turned Out to Be a Decent Grade-B Western
4 March 2015 | by Uriah43See all my reviews

"Jonathan Adams" (Scott Brady) is a young man from Boston who has his heart set on painting. But rather than paint portraits in that city he has chosen to live in the American wilderness near a fort in the Mohawk Valley of New York. Because of his youth and charm he has attracted the attention of the lovely barmaid by the name of "Greta Jones" (Allison Hayes) who has willingly agreed to pose for him as a model. However, things begin to get a bit difficult for him when his fiancé named "Cynthia Stanhope" (Lori Nelson) arrives unexpectedly from Boston. Likewise, his chance encounter with an Iroquois maiden by the name of "Onida" (Rita Gam) really complicates things. Now rather than reveal any more of the movie and risk spoiling it for those who haven't seen it I will just say that, all things considered, this turned out to be a decent grade-B western. Admittedly, there were some parts which were a bit corny and it didn't have an all-star cast or a superior script. But I enjoyed it and the three actresses just mentioned certainly didn't hurt the scenery in any way. Accordingly, I rate it as about average.
