Oil Riot on the Western Front

With a foe who's an oil baron's goon,
It's a showdown to spoil your high noon
There's no law, so the Swede
Is drawing a bead,
And will throw at his foil a harpoon.

Sterling Hayden stars in Terror in a Texas Town (1958), the last feature directed by the great Joseph H. Lewis. This fabulous gonzo western is showing in Chicago tonight at the Portage Theater.  

Postscript: Here's my review of the film.
