DUEL AT DIABLO (Theatrical Release USA 1966)

Ben Meyers’ rating: 3.9|5.0 Starsììì

Duel at Diablo starts fairly well and finishes fairly well. The casting department chose the interesting mix of James Garner, Sidney Portier, and Dennis Weaver to portray the story. Dennis Weaver’s acting needed some tweaking for more believability. The movie did not really catch its western genre well perhaps due to the heavy involvement of its storyline with a strong female element.

Three stories intertwine to make this western about Apaches, the United States Army, scouts, and Indian wives come to life onscreen.
