The last released starring movie role for Clint Walker, The Big Man Himself. The other two movies he's done, Gold of the Seven Saints and especially Yellowstone Kelly, are 5 star movies as well. Get them. Clint Walker, the gentle giant (unless there's trouble), was the man every other man wanted to emulate and every boy wanted as a father figure. He's infectious.

Clint is running from the law but he just has to help out the lady and her boy get away from the Comanches, as any true westerner would. There's lots of action and trouble, riding through western lands, and interesting human interaction. The scene of Clint grabbing the kid who's shooting at Comanches is short but priceless. Only Clint could do it that way. Virginia Mayo and Brian Keith give good performances. I like Virginia Mayo when she's more down to earth. The kid is great. It's all good.

I bought this from amazon.ca (Canada) but thought I should review it here too.

Fort Dobbs [Remaster] is a traditional western about law escaping gunman who has a posse after him to indian country , where he has to in order to save lonely farmer's wife and her boy after indians attack to her farm accompany them to safety to Fort Dobbs. Further complication is that she thinks gunman has killed her husband of which the evidence is farmers jacket with blood marks on the back of it. And gunman is wearing the same jacket.

After troublesome journey they find Fort Dobbs empty of living occupants because Fort already has been succesfully attacked by indians and they have to start defencing themself with the help from very same town's (of which gunman escaped) people with sheriff in charge of wagontrain who also has sought sanctuary in Fort Dobbs.

Then desperate battle starts between indians and sanctuaryseekers...

Very good western !!

I have an old VHS recording of this movie and am glad to see it come out on DVD at long last. Clint Walker is one of my favorite actors although the only other movie of his that I have is Yuma, costarring Edgar Buchanan and Barry Sullivan.

Having killed a man who wronged him, Gar Davis (Clint Walker) flees from the town of Largo with a posse hot on his trail. He stumbles upon a dead man who had been killed by Comanches and, to elude the posse, changes clothes with him, rolls him over a cliff and leaves on foot. Needing a horse, he tries to obtain one at a nearby ranch, only to find that the dead man left a widow (Virginia Mayo) and a son. Since their ranch is about to be attacked by Comanches, Clint persuades Mayo and son to accompany him to Fort Dobbs. Along the way, they encounter Brian Keith, a likable scoundrel who hopes to enrich himself by selling a load of rifles to the indians. Conflict occurs when Mayo begins to suspect Clint of killing her husband and when Keith becomes overly interested in stirring up trouble.

As other reviewers have already outlined the general plot, I won't spoil anything by writing more, although I will say that the movie ended well and all involved gave good performances. The movie looks good in B/W.

I purchased this for the reason it was remastered - little disappointed in the remastering of this DVD they could have done a better job- glad I still have it - 16.9 format I like on my big screen, but audio is so so that to could have been done a little better - but being a Clint Walker fan for over 50yrs I will not overly complain - still a good story line - A+ on the music score done by Max Steiner from (Gone With The Wind) fame - I'll be honest that I will give the movie an A grade for the acting - buy it - A family film for a change

Fine, well-paced western with lots of action. Clint Walker traded on his fame as TV's Cheyenne to make a series of fun, escapist theatrical westerns. This is a solid entry with Brian Keith as an effective badguy.

Classic kick-ass western starring the legendary Clint Walker, Virginia Mayo and Brian Keith. Written by the great Burt Kennedy and directed by Gordon Douglas. Highly Recommended. --- Also checkout two more Clint Walker classics - (1) YELLOWSTONE KELLY, also written by Kennedy and directed by Douglas and co-starring John Russell, Ray Danton, Claude Aikens, Warren Oates and 77 Sunset Strip's Edd Byrnes. (2) GOLD OF THE SEVEN SAINTS - with Walker and 007 Roger Moore with western legends Chill Wills, Gene Evans - Directed by Gordon Douglas - I highly recommend this Walker/Douglas trilogy!

"Nana, I wish we'd get some more of those Clint Walker movies," said my ten-year-old grandson. So we did.
Walker plays Gar Davis a gunman who comes to town to kill a man. We aren't told why at first, but the marshal seems to know. When Davis shoots the man, he flees, but the only place to flee with the posse on his tail is to the wild lands where the Comanche are gathering. He finds a man's body with an arrow in the back, changes coats with him, and tosses him off a cliff so that the posse thinks the Comanche killed Gar. After trudging across the flat lands, Gar finds a small ranch. Gar, the woman, and her son escape the Comanches who attack her ranch and try to reach Fort Dobbs. Along the way the woman finds her husband's coat in Gar's saddlebag and assumes that he has shot him in the back. When Brian Keith of "Family Affair" shows up, the woman is tempted to join him instead of Davis, but Clem or Clep undermines his success by attempting to rape her. So Gar takes them on to Fort Dobbs to find some shocking things.
The acting was well done. Brian Keith made a convincing, somewhat indolent, villain. Except for the rape scene which, of course, our hero foils, I did not find objectionable elements. The language wasn't bad. We enjoyed the story and I'd recommend it as a pleasant and exciting Western.
