Directed by Frank McDonald. With Audie Murphy, Ben Cooper, Colleen Miller, DeForest Kelley. In 1875 a murderous outlaw gang breaks criminals from jail, uses them to help in crimes, and then kills them for the reward, when it goes high enough.
Watched because the movie was mentioned in a Star Trek book I’m reading, when they mentioned that De Forest Kelly was unlikely to be taken seriously as a kind doctor, as he had just played a horrible, no good outlaw in “Gunfight at Comanche Creek”. The movie’s pretty good, though there’s less De in the movie than I was expecting from the big deal they made about his role in the book.
Gunfight at Comanche Creek originally appeared on Adam Selvidge’s Website on April 29, 2020.
