    The Young Land - Full Length Western Movies - An American gunslinger
    kills a Mexican man in California immediately after the
    Mexican-American war. The killer is arrested and put on trial for
    murder with the Hispanic population waiting to learn of American
    justice.Patrick Wayne had his first starring role in this handsomely
    produced film - a B western with many A western trappings, including
    a remarkable sound track - and, though only about eighteen years old
    when he did the movie, comports himself well. Whats most impressive
    is the willingness of everyone involved to tackle a then
    controversial theme, for this is one of those mid to late 1950s
    westerns that dealt with racial prejudice during an era that saw the
    birth of the modern civil rights movement. Of course, civil rights
    dates back in our history, and so the incident in the film serves as
    an effective metaphor for what was going on at the time when this
    movie was made. A wild-eyed Billy the Kid type (Dennis Hopper, doing
    his umpteenth version of James Dean by way of Nick Adams, the rebel
    without a cause as a whining weakling) shoots down a Mexican citizen
    in the newly formed state of California. Its up to a very young
    lawman (Wayne) to hold him for trial. The Mexicans in town want
    proof that they are equal to Anglos now that California is American,
    and so want to see the prisoner hung - legally. Anglos, on the other
    hand, want the killer to go free. Though hes dating a beautiful
    Spanish girl (Yvonne Craig, with delightfully revealing
    décolletage), hes fair-minded and refuses to take sides - holding
    the prisoner for the judge who will decide. That character is played
    by the great Dan OHerlihy, who brings this eccentric (and ultimately
    pivotal) character to vivid life. The result is something
    exceptional, and its a shame this film is not better known. The
