Rip, Shred and Terror

In westerns with showdowns at noon
or shootouts inside a saloon

when six-guns are drawn
the film-goers yawn
but not when they throw a harpoon

Starring Sterling Hayden as a Scandinavian whaler,
director Joseph H. Lewis' Terror In a Texas Town
has a showdown unlike that of any other western.
