Ride in the Whirlwind

Three cowhands, between jobs, have the dangerous dumb luck to pitch night time camp in the identical valley as a cabin full of fellows who simply robbed a stagecoach and killed the guard. Come morning, a posse arrives, kinds up alongside the ridge, and takes with no consideration that everybody down beneath is guilty–fit for both capturing to bits or hanging from a tree, whichever comes first. Exactly half of Experience within the Whirlwind’s 82 minutes is dedicated to tapping the matter-of-fact, absurdist horror of that scenario. Within the remaining half, the 2 surviving cowpokes (Jack Nicholson and Cameron Mitchell) search shelter at a farmhouse the place they reluctantly threaten the farmer, settle for breakfast from his spouse, flirt along with his daughter (Millie Perkins), play some checkers, and hope to stay undetected until dusk.
