  • JonMB's rating of the film The Law and Jake Wade

    Judging by the other ratings, I liked this movie a little better than most. What struck me the most was the beauty of the locations in which the movie was filmed. Made me want to pack up and head to Colorado. Even though the plot might not have been anything original, the acting was pretty good and the other production values seem to be slightly higher than the average western from that period. Worth a watch.
