This rowdy tale of frontier justice in a cattle town is populated by Emily Barker, a beautiful young widow; Burl Channing, a vindictive federal marshal; and Frank Killian, a crafty gambler. Charlie O'Dowd expertly renders the variety of characters with various accents, as well as changes in tone, volume, and cadence. His deliberate and tense pacing matches the plot and sustains listener interest. Brief sound effects are added to break up chapters and signal the end of each cassette. This dramatic yet romantic tale of a deadly gunfight in front of Dodge City's familiar Long Branch Saloon is a classic Western. S.C.A. © AudioFile 2005, Portland, Maine [Published: DEC 05/ JAN 06]
