Ride Clear of Diablo

Ride Clear of Diablo is a 1954 Audie Murphy Western. Also in this is recently deceased Russell Johnson (best known as The Professor in Gilligan's Island). Jack Elam and Denver Pyle are in this, too. This is standard fare: Murphy plays the son who comes back when he hears his father and brother were killed and their cattle stolen. Ah, revenge! The plot that keeps on giving.

via youtube:

The Examiner gives it 4 out of 5 stars, calls it "underrated" and says it "became a definitive Audie Murphy film that swiftly cemented his likable screen persona and jump-started the golden era of his career during the mid to late '50s."
