Robert Taylor did a fine job.


He actually made a good western hero. I had only seen him in some of his mediavel films or Quo Vadis.

Not only was he great in this one he was also good in The Law and Jake Wade with Richard Widmark. Two great westerns. I only wish they would put Return of the Gunfighter out on DVD.

Taylor was always good no matter the role he played. I really liked "The Law and Jake Wade".A dandy of a good Western.I think Chad Everett was terribly miscast in this film. He just didn't fit.

flanagan-3 says > Chad Everett was terribly miscast in this film. He just didn't fit.
Clearly his role in the film was to be eye candy and attract female viewers. Men seemed to love westerns but unless there was a love story or some super hot young stud they didn't appeal to women.

I loved seeing him in this. He was one very good looking guy! Unfortunately, the movie was never released to the public at the time. Instead they were cranking out a lot of terrible sixties movies . so I feel I'm enjoying what all those young women missed.

I thought Robert Taylor was good in this too but I tend to like his movies so I’m kind of biased. I even watch westerns when actors I like appear in them. He’s had a lot of good ones. They were western based but the stories were interesting enough; it wasn’t just men on horseback riding around shooting at each other or shooting Indians. The western themes tend to get so repetitive.

It's ironic how both Robert Taylor and Chad Everett went on to die of lung cancer. Robert was already sick at the time this movie was made.
