3.0 out of 5 stars "Western Classics" from OPTIMUM 24 Sep 2013
By A. W. Wilson TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I usually find myself agreeing with everything "Capt Spinthrift" and "Spike" say about westerns, but I can only partly agree with them over this later Skip Homeier (oops! Sorry...) Audie Murphy picture. The Optimum release is a very good print Ratio 1.85:1, which benefits from excellent location work after the first 20 mins shot on Universal's backlot. Sadly, for me, the plot is far too cliched and not in a good way. You could almost be watching "Posse From Hell" (am I the only one who found this one pretty nasty?), with it's mismatched characters in the Posse after Darren McGavin. From the moment Audie walks into the saloon and ther are Skip and Berkley Harris sneer5ing and laughing at him you just know...We had to have the obligatory Apaches too, which, while the attacks are well done, don't really add to the plot.For a duration of only 77' I still found myself hoping for a better film. However...never be completely negative... Murphy is good as always and the support cast is fine-Skip (why so prominent on front cover), Alan Hale Jnr, George Tobias, Ed Platt, and almost w/o parts for Mort Mills, Ray Teal and Bob Steele, all add to the western feel. Sadly all the women come off badly, but again I blame the writers. Whatever haqppened to Ruta Lee? I know I have only given this 3 stars, and that's because out of the many hundreds of westerns I've watched, this just ain't the best, but recomended for Audie fans I guess, and fans of Skippy of course.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Superior B Western. 1 Mar 2010
Audie Murphy continued to make 50s style westerns well into the sixties. Most of these B westerns were very poor fare indeed. I think of films like "Arizona Raiders" and "40 Guns to Apache Pass". Which is a pity, because his past staccato delivery had been much improved by this time. This shows in "Bullet for a Badman" , where his acting is definitely better than in the fifties. Apart from "A Time for Dying", in which he only appeared briefly, this has to be his best film. Relegated by Universal to a mere support picture at the drive-ins it is a superior B western in many departments.

The very literate script has Murphy as an impoverished rancher trying to forget his past life, where he lived by the gun. He has married the wife of an old Texas ranger colleague gone bad, played by Darren McGavin, and looks after the son of this union as his own. But of course the lawman turned outlaw returns to try and reclaim his family, after a botched robbery. But the posse with Murphy at their head is in hot pursuit. The posse pursue the outlaw deep into hostile Apache territory. Some of the posse are more interested in the loot from the bank robbery than the reward on the outlaws head. Murphy has to fight both Indians and his own posse to get out alive. We head to an unexpected and powerful finale.

The film has many things to admire, not least the ravishing cinematography. Way better than the average B western, and containing location photography that would put many A westerns to shame. The location filming in beautiful Zion National Park, Utah, undoubtedly helped the splendid outdoor scenes. The film has a very strong supporting cast.

5.0 out of 5 stars A GOOD SOLID WESTERN 27 July 2009
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Sam Ward ( played by Darren McGavin ) is the leader of a gang of outlaws and a ruthless killer. He has spent time in prison, and his wife Susan ( played by Beverley Owen ) has divorced him and married his one-time friend Logan Keliher ( played by Audie Murphy ). He also has a 6-year-old son who only knows Keliher as his father. But Sam Ward wants his wife and son back, and he means to kill Keliher in order to achieve this.
When Ward and his gang rob the town bank, a posse is formed to track him down and Keliher joins it. The problem is that Keliher wants to take Ward back alive, while the members of the posse are only interested in the reward money. If they have to kill Keliher as well as Ward, then so be it.
This is a very entertaining Audie Murphy western and benefits from being in anamorphic widescreen ( 16 x 9 ). To my knowledge, it has never been shown on television in this format. It is also an excellent print.
One minor problem for me is that the disc makes quite a loud humming noise in my SHARP dvd player, although this is not noticeable when I play it in my ALBA. This has happened before with another Optimum release, namely Brothers In Law. Just a case of incompatablity, I guess.
