Synopsis
This engaging Western, a pilot for a prospective series and an homage to the cowboy movies of yore, has a handsome, dazzlingly blond young farmer team up with a Bible-quoting runaway slave to track down the infamous Quantrill. He learns how to shoot from a legendary gunslinger who convinces him to be a fighter for law and justice and save the seventh bullet in his special gun for evil. "Imagine `Star Wars' as a Western" was the publicity ploy for this one, which envoked the names of the greats of the Old West and had General Custer himself turning up with a twinkle in his eye, a corn-cob pipe in his mouth, and, like a later military figure, promising Sitting Bull: "I shall return."
