4.0 out of 5 stars Not Your Run-Of-The-Mill Western, December 17, 2005
"Ride Beyond Vengeance" is more than a typical western. Although produced on a low budget by television producers Mark Goodson And Bill Toddman ("The Price is Right") and featuring several names mostly familiar to TV audiences, it has a dynamic, if pessimistic script more concerned with character development than standard action--not that the film lacks action or violence.

Cowboy Jonas Trapp (Chuck Connors of "Rifleman" fame) falls in love with the beautiful Jessie (Kathryn Hays), very appealing in her first film, a wealthy girl out of his humble class. Against the wishes of her snobbish aunt (Ruth Warrick), she marries him, later faking a pregnancy to win her aunt's consent. But Jonas tires of living off of his wife's family, and eventually deserts her to become a buffalo hunter. 11 years later, with his self-made fortune, he sets out to return home, only to be set upon by three sadistic marauders, Michael Rennie, Bill Bixby and Claude Akins, who steal his money and leave him for dead. Rescued by a farmer (Paul Fix, Connors' "Rifleman" co-star) who nurses him back to health, Jonas becomes consumed by the desire for revenge. As fate would have it, all three men live close to Jonas' former home. Matters quickly get worse when Jonas reunites with his wife, only to discover that she is now engaged to Rennie.

Made on a three week schedule on an obvious sound-stage, "Ride Beyond Vengeance" succeeds in transcending it's shortcomings by the powerful acting of a first-rate cast. Connors gives his best performance, and he is well (if briefly) supported by Joan Blondell (as a gossipy townswoman), Gloria Grahame (a cheating wife having an affair with Bixby), Gary Merrill as Jonas' foster father, Frank Gorshin as an arrogant ranch hand, and Buddy Baer as a town bully.

5.0 out of 5 stars "whiskey man, he just killed us both" May 27, 2008
A very entertaining movie unlike any western you'll ever see. Chuck Connors tears up the screen with his charisma, towering presence, and fists! Most everyone in this has their talents fully exploited with drunkard Claude Akins always talking to his imaginary alter ego "whisky man", uptight dandy Bill Bixby, and freaked out murder witness frank gorshin making the most of their screen time. Full of action, drama and a wicked sense of humor (just under the surface), almost every scene is a classic for one reason or another. Chuck really does get "branded" this time by cattle rustlers Akins, Michael Rennie, and sadist Bill Bixby, after which he discovers his money gone and heads to town looking for his old flame and the three guys. Kathryn Hays is tough and does a great job as Chuck's wife whom he deserted years back to pursue his fortune. Although this is a violent movie, there is no blood. Besides the rifleman this is Chuck Connors best role. 16x9 DVD pitcure is great, mono audio also good.

4.0 out of 5 stars Terrfic! November 23, 2008
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Terrific movie; a fine example of 1960's Westerns. Chuck Connors is superb and remains one of the finest actors of his generation and of the Western genre.

5.0 out of 5 stars Robbed, Branded and Marked as a Thief, But He Wasn't. August 16, 2014
Somebody done Chuck Conners wrong. They robbed and branded him as a thief. Worse yet, one of the men wants his wife. Chuck's out for revenge.

An All-Star cast gets lined up where with Chuck Conners, Joan Blondell, Michael Rennie (Klaatu in Day the Earth Stood Still), Claude Akins, James McDarren and Bill Bixby.

This is a really good Western. Yes, there's gunplay and horses as well as numerous fights. But there's a lot of thinking to be done.

5.0 out of 5 stars .....Best Revenge Western Ever!!.... September 23, 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Yes; This Has the Cheesy Look and Production Values of a Made For TV Movie; and the Framing Device With James MacArthur as 'The Census Taker' is Really Hokey; But....A Really Great Little Hardboiled Western Film Noir Ensues; as Chuck Connors Gets Royally Screwed Over Time and Again; and Finally Starts Kicking a Lot of Righteous Ass.... The Film is a Who's Who of Character Actors; From Arthur O'Connell to Joan Blondell to Gloria Grahame to Frank Gorshin.......Basically, Everyone on the Universal Backlot Was Called in........After Years in the Wilderness; Buffalo Hunter Conners Returns to Town; Only to be Waylaid and Branded By Sadistic Dandy-Boy Gigolo Bill Bixby (Amazing ); Robbed By Michael Rennie and Claude Akins....... Who All Refer to Him as 'Buffaler Stink'.....When He Finally Crawls Into Town; His Wife Doesn't Recognize Him; Thinking Him a Creepy Drunk; and Slaps Him Every Time They Meet.....It Only Gets Worse From There......Lots of Brooding Drama; Angst; and One of the Longest, Best Barroom Brawls Put on Film Occur....... The Film is So Great on Many Levels; But Also Unintentionally Funny As Well; A Great Film To Invite a Bunch of People to Watch ; Just to See Their Reactions!!.......

Recognize Him; and

5.0 out of 5 stars ELWOOD COATES! March 18, 2014
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Just the character of Elwood Coates played by Claude Akins is worth buying this one. Side-splittingly funny! That grin and that
smirk of his make the whole show! We never see the "Whiskey-Man" but apparently he does. In one scene in the movie he says:
"We got our own bottle don't we Whiskey-Man!" Yes, and he's obviously drinking from it throughout the whole film. So check it
out, and see for yourself. -PETE A

To be in the company of the supporting cast made Conners shine all the more. To me Conners brought the McCain (Lucas McCain 'The Rifleman') morals and determination to this role. Read more
