Johnny Mack Brown in One Strange Western
Somewhere between a melodrama and a psychological thriller, this western, twists and all is one strange western. Nothing is exactly what it should be and the end isn't exactly what it ought to be, except that Brown gets the girl. Its not a bad film, just very different - don't expect your usual western.

Interesting B Western
Alabama running back Johnny Mack Brown plays an expert shootist and rider who is yellow in a real gunfight. The movie plays against B expectations in many ways and remains interesting throughout.
