If god didn't want them sheared he would not have made them sheep

Advantages: Classic Western action film
Disadvantages: The extras could perhaps be a bit better

This is a review of the MGM Blu-Ray, about £7 on amazon. This is one of my favourite Westerns. While it doesnít have the savagery of The Wild Bunch or the beauty of Once Upon A Time In The West, itís a hell of a lot of fun, and Iíve loved it ever since I ...
