Man From Del Rio | The Ride Back - Anthony Quinn Western Double Feature
Directed by Harry Horner, Allen H. Miner
MAN FROM DEL RIO (1956) Screen legend Anthony Quinn (Zorba the Greek) stars as Mexican gunfighter Dave Robles in this classic western directed by Harry Horner (Vicki) and co-starring Katy Jurado (High Noon). After he’s challenged by a few notorious gunfighters who he defeats without breaking a sweat, the town of Mesa hires Dave as their new sheriff. But a crooked saloon owner, Ed Bannister (Peter Whitney, The Big Heat), wants Dave to be placed on his payroll or end up dead like the previous sheriff who was hanged by a lynch mob. The film’s wonderful cast includes John Larch (Play Misty for Me) and Whit Bissell (Not as a Stranger). THE RIDE BACK (1957) Screen legend Anthony Quinn (Across 110th Street) is crafty, laconic and rugged as a fatally convicted criminal in this sharp, stylish and off-beat western that delivers genuine excitement! Against the backdrop of the violent Mexican border, a lawman’s grim duty and an outlaw’s despair collide. Texas Marshal Chris Hamish (William Conrad, Four Faces West) is sent to Mexico to bring Bob Kallen (Quinn) to justice. But once Kallen is captured, Hamish finds himself allied with the outlaw against marauding, murderous Apaches. When Hamish is seriously wounded and Kallen sees his chance to escape, which will he choose: freedom... or redemption? Lita Milan (The Left Handed Gun) co-stars in this action-packed western beautifully shot by the great Joseph F. Biroc (The Towering Inferno).
