Synopsis

A hired killer, Rubel Noon is shot in the head in an attempted assassination. Instead of being killed, he loses his memory. He meets and befriends outlaw R.B. Rimes (Boyd). Together, they try to piece together the clues and discover who shot him and just who he is.

Comment

A totally failed attempt to turn a lame story about an amnesiac gunfighter into an arty looking western. Everything seems to be wrong in a film as explosive as a nap at noon. (by Stanton)
