Cutter's Trail

john mexican avila bowen

(CBS, 2/10/1970, 90 mins). A formula Western about a U.S. marshal (John Gavin, who later gave up acting to become U.S. Ambassador to Mexico) who finds his town nearly destroyed by Mexican bandits during his absence and vows to track down the desperadoes in their home territory—with the help of a young Mexican mother and her son. Reversing the usual process, this film premiered as a 90-minute movie and subsequently was shown as a two-hour hoss opera.
