Movie Quiz 09/02/2022-

The story itself is a composite of all the elements needed to make a great Western: good guys in white hats, bad guys in black hats, townspeople content to stand aside and to let the battle be fought between the outlaws and the man with the tin star, a beautiful woman to distract the hero and finally help him when the chips are down.

The main stars, you know them all. Turn in the top-notch performances one would expect from them. The female lead part is still living today. The rest I am afraid have gone to that Western Ranch in the sky.
Two others though play in this Western are also well known on stage as performers. Both music and comedy.
With an 8.0 rating this movie is one of the top classic Westerns.

It's pretty amazing that a character who appeared in only 3 feature films has had such an impact on popular culture! I guess there's something appealing on a primal level about a sea monster and a beautiful maiden!
Oh, and my score was 9/10
