dave j Tuesday, August 6, 2013 (1964) Guns OF Diablo WESTERN A very satisfying made-for-TV western cobbled together from two episodes of the TV series "The Travels of Jamie McPheeters" of the Robert Lewis Taylor Western novel of the same name starring Charles Bronson as Linc Murdock and a 14 year old Kurt Russell as Jamie McPheeters visiting a small town to pick up a few provisions for their 'wagon train' on their way to California. And while there, Linc then recognizes a woman who was supposed to be dead. Viewers know that they have some history together but don't quite know what it is for it involves a love triangle. While Linc is trying to make sense of this, 14 year old Jamie is befriending an old man who was supposed to be a millionaire. What I liked about this movie is the fact that throughout the experience it kept me fascinated since it showcased a never-before-seen plausible scenario with a fictional setup and the performances are great with the small cast they have. The only downside is that it does consist to have a made-for-TV movie which the budget had been compromised despite the superficial ending. 2.5 out of 4 stars Rated 3 out of 5 stars 03/30/23 Full Review Audience Member If I'm going to die I'm going to die with my boots on Linc Murdock and Jamie McPheeters ride into the small western town of Diablo initially posing as father and son. When they arrive, Murdock encounters an old flame that appears ready to marry the local source of income against her will. Murdock will do his best to rekindle a relationship with his old flame and rescue her; meanwhile, McPheeters finds an old senile man on his death bed that tells strange tales of finding gold in California. "There's no fool like the man that puts his own foot in his mouth." Boris Sagal, director of The Diary of Ann Frank, World War III, Angela, The Dream Makers, Deliver Us from Evil, The Omega Man, and The Mosquito Squadron, delivers Guns of Diablo. The storyline for this picture is interesting and well delivered. Initially, it seems standard for the western genre but the characters are delivered and developed very well. The cast delivers perfect performances for this genre and includes Charles Bronson, Kurt Russell, Susan Oliver, and Jan Merlin. "All these towns look the same to me." "Yeah, they don't change much." We came across this film while searching for Charles Bronson pictures and were shocked we never heard of a film starring Kurt Russell and Charles Bronson. This was every bit as good as we hoped and a worthwhile addition to the western genre. This isn't the best Bronson western (Once Upon A Time in the West), but it is definitely a solid picture that is worth your time. "Cutting down is better than cutting out." Grade: B+ Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/19/23 Full Review Audience Member Charles Bronson not playing a tough guy? Weird but whats really weird is that I read on imdb that this wasnt an actual movie.It was just a couple of episodes of the TV series "The Travels Of Jaimie McPheeters" sewn together.Still very good though Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Guns of Diablo is a western/drama starring Charles Bronson and a 14 year old Kurt Russell who has playing only the second role of his career. Bronson is a wagon scout that runs into an old flame in a town he once visited, but is efforts to rekindle the relationship and broken up by the sons of a cattle baron that never liked him. It's a pretty simple and typical straightforward B western. Nothing fancy or great about it. The acting is average and it's borderline boring. In fact, outside of it starring a young Kurt Russell I will not remember anything about it. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 02/09/23 Full Review Audience Member Charles is very good Actor Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/04/23 Full Review Read all reviews
