      Audience Member A really good western hear how they recommend it James Welch, Henderson, Arkansas, November 26, 2023 Rated 4 out of 5 stars 11/27/23 Full Review Audience Member good sequel of sorts just love these RKO WWII/post WWII westerns Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member 150502: Found this film a bit painful but saw it through to the end. Actually, it picked up quite a bit after seventy minutes. At that point there is a fairly intense gunfight between the law and the bad men. Following the capture of Bill Doolin, Vance (Randolph Scott) goes out one on three against the Sundance Kid, Bill and the Arkansas Kid. A pretty dark event occurs between these two scenes and it motivates Vance into a foolish battle of fists against the consistently evil Sundance Kid. Lucky for Vance, a misfire allows the fight to occur in the first place. Gabby Hayes continues to provide comedic relief but I sure don't ever remember the Sundance Kid, the Younger Brothers, the Daltons, Bill Doolin and Billy the Kid ever riding together. Oh well, just let that pass. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Boring. I actually fell asleep watch it. For shame. Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/17/23 Full Review Audience Member A Summit of Outlawry--Decent B Western!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Fun, rollicking western romp with Randolph Scott at the head. Yeehaw!
