Day #21,605

Walk km 6550-6557 (15,049 to go): Holdom Station to Confederation Park

Movie #1573: Raiders Of Old California (1957, Albert C Gannaway)

It's that rarest of all movies, the Faron Young western. And amazingly, Faron actually does quite well in it. It's obvious he knows his way around a horse. He may not be Spencer Tracey but he does a fine job.
Also in the cast is fellow country&western star Marty Robbins, Douglas "father of Kim" Fowley and Lee "the Bad" VanCleef.
Mr Gannaway also brings a few nice touches to the movie including some fine tracking shots at the beginning.
The only thing negative about this movie is the amazingly stupid ending.
