Directed by Bernard L. Kowalski
Diego “Macho” Callahan (David Janssen, TV’s The Fugitive, S.O.S. Titanic), a man tricked into enlisting in the Confederate army, is later thrown into a hellish stockade on desertion charges. He eventually breaks out of the prison camp and sets out to kill Duffy (Lee J. Cobb, 12 Angry Men), the man in yellow boots who bamboozled him into signing enlistment papers. However, after accidentally killing a Confederate officer (David Carradine, The Long Riders), he finds himself pursued by a gang of vicious bounty hunters intent on collecting the reward put up by the dead officer’s widow (Jean Seberg, Line of Demarcation). TV and film veteran Bernard L. Kowalski (Stiletto, Krakatoa, East of Java) directed this dark and gritty western with wonderful supporting turns by James Booth (Robbery), Pedro Armendáriz Jr. (The Mask of Zorro), Bo Hopkins (White Lightning), Anne Revere (National Velvet), Richard Anderson (The Gunfight at Dodge City), Diane Ladd (Wild at Heart) and Matt Clark (The Grissom Gang).
