Ex-Marshal Jim Cole (played with rugged charm by 'Cheyenne' Clint Walker) moves his family onto a small ranch, hoping to get away from the dangers of his previous line of work. His loving wife, Angela (popular '60s star Martha Hyer) is overjoyed by their new life, and the kids soon develop a bond with the beautiful countryside, and the small town nearby.
Not EVERYONE is happy about the arrangement, however; town bigshot Jed Curry (Keenan Wynn) wants Cole's land, and his sons are soon attempting to provoke Cole, in an unsuccessful attempt to force him to leave. When a montrous killer grizzly appears, and starts killing off Cole's livestock, Curry sees his opportunity; as the primary shareholder at the bank, he makes it nearly impossible for the rancher to get loans to replace stock.
The grizzly, nicknamed 'Satan', terrorizes the countryside, killing men, horses, and farm animals, and Cole methodically begins hunting it, in hopes of getting the $750 bounty that would 'save' his ranch!
The arrival of bounty hunter Cass Dowdy (played with cold-blooded menace by Leo Gordon, a veteran screen villain) further muddies the waters; Cole had once arrested him, and Dowdy spent two years in the 'pen', vowing revenge! Adored by the eldest Cole child, Charlie (Kevin Brodie), Dowdy announces he will kill the grizzly and accept the bounty, simply to ruin Cole!Read more ›
Clint is still with us and living in Grass Valley CA(visit his website, he often responds to emails).
Walker was certainly the biggest and most imposing actor ever to appear onscreen, not excepting the body-builder types like Arnold and Reeves. He was perfectly proportioned(compare him to 6', 210lb Ely standing together!)Note: He was and still is an avid exponent of exercise and proper eating. He was also very under-rated as an actor. Very natural. Great screen presence(compare to current crop of stars)and he had a terrific speaking and singing voice. Great character actors here,(the REAL actors!) in every scene. Especially enjoyed Jack Elam as a good guy, for a change, and nobody does the baddie like Leo Gordon. Regis Toomey, Sammy Jackson and Keenan Wynn...how could you go wrong?
Gorgeously filmed in the Tetons. Uplifting(except for grizzlies, I suppose) and really worth purchasing. Reminds me of when movies were made for all-age viewing, exciting, and left you feeling good. Thanks, Clint. And may God continue to bless you for many more years to come.
