Peaceable man gets hostile
1 January 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

Naturally in Calling Wild Bill Elliott its himself that plays the title role. I was a bit dubious about this film and normally I like Wild Bill Elliott films, but the idea of a self appointed territorial governor as villain and played by Herbert Heyes was a bit much to swallow.

Yet that's what we have here as Heyes sets himself up in some unnamed part of the Old West. Heyes is bleeding the settlers dry and has folks like Roy Barcroft as part of his army of state militia to do it.

When he messes with Fred Kohler Jr.'s family that's when Elliott who as always is a peaceable man gets into the mix. After the deaths of Kohler's father and a federal judge. the latter with the blame thrown on Wild Bill. Elliott gets downright hostile.

Lots of shooting and fisticuffs to satisfy the Saturday Matinée kid in any of us. Pretend your 10 year old and the film might pass muster.
