I saw this movie when I was eight or nine years old, and when I watched it again not long ago, I was surprised by how much of it I remembered. I was highly impressed as a kid because I already loved "Ghost Riders in the Sky" and thought it was about the greatest song ever. And I thought the scene in the movie when Gene sang the song to a dying man was about the coolest thing ever. That's why I included the song and the scene below instead of the trailer that I usually post.
The movie's not bad either. It's told in flashback, and it involves a romance between Gene and a real estate agent whose father's been framed for murder, along with that great old standard, the water rights to a ranch. There is, of course, a crooked salon owner, and a lot of shootin', hard ridin', and fightin'. In fact one of the fights is a comedy scene that works well, coming as it does right after Gene has cheated a cheater in a card game. It was fun to see this one again, and the very last scene got to me just as much as it did when I was but a lad. I'm really glad I took the time to watch this one for old times' sake.
