John 'The Duke' Wayne is a police lieutenant determined to track down the gang of drug-dealers responsible for the murder of two other officers. An obvious attempt to cash in on the success of another cowboy hero, turned vigilante-cop, this stale effort suffers from a bland script and disappointingly little action. Wayne does his best with what he's giving, but evidently he just wasn't that lucky.
So-so, but not much more

This is basically 'The African Queen' recast as a western. It's worth seeing for the Wayne/Hepburn chemistry and for Richard Jordan's (Gen. Armistead in 'Gettysburg') villainous role of Hawk, but don't go out of your way.
