Raiders of Old California (1957) 72 min.
10:50 P.M. and 1:50 A.M.
Raiders of Old California has everything to love about a B Western. There's plenty of action, with hombres biting the dust by the score, and an over the top performance by Jim Davis as the chief outlaw. And it's chock-full of those errors that makes watching these films such a hoot. Even though the story is supposedly set in 1840s and 1850s California, the land grant being fought over is supposedly "from the Pecos to the Rio Grande and north to Santa Fe", placing the setting solidly in Texas and New Mexico. All the uniforms are post-Civil War, and the weapons are Colt .45s and Winchester repeaters, weapons developed in the 1870s. The guns of course never run out of bullets, and even the "wild" cattle are domestic Herefords. Even the Comanches are misplaced, since they never made California their home. IMDb
Starring Lee Van Cleef, Marty Robbins, and Faron Young
