The Beast of Hollow Mountain
The calm professionalism of Guy Madison is the driving force down in old Mexico as he runs cattle. He’s a very capable fellow, so he gets on well with the locals, but there’s some opposition.
Patricia Medina is the hinge of many a scene. She rides a horse like a real cowgirl, and then the camera pivots around her like a sculptural study.
The opposition reaches a mortal frenzy, but is completely transcended by the appearance of the beast. The cowboy saves his enemy from its clutches, and tempts it into quicksand by swinging on a rope before it. Personal animosities aren’t at issue, but the feast of unreason.
