DEFINITIVE TAKE on the telly Western, with unabashed celebration of good ol’ Stars’n’Stripes to the fore, and less about them Injums if you please. Frankie Laine-voiced “Keep ‘em doggies rollin'” foghorn of a theme raised the curtain on seemingly endless attempt by mid-1860s cattle drovers to, well, drove a load of cows from Texas up to Missouri before lip-smacking speculators from Tha’ Darn Railroad Company put them out of business. CLINT EASTWOOD, ERIC FLEMING and I-was-told-this-was-going-to-be-all-back-projection CHARLES GRAY dodged the tumbleweed.
