starring John Derek, Joan Evans, Jim Davis

A young man returns to town, determined to avenge himself on the uncle who has cheated him out of his rightful inheritance.
Based on an Esquire magazine story by Todhunter Ballard, this fast-moving Western was filmed mainly on location in Colorado. The film's director, William Witney. was responsible for The Bonnie Parker Story, made in 1958. However, it was not until Faye Dunaway portrayed this gun-slinging gangster's moll in 1967 that Bonnie and Clyde became 'in' people.

at Lansdowne Road, Dublin
Introduced by Cliff Morgan

With French ambitions for this season's championship title thwarted at the very first hurdle by Scotland's unexpected victory in Paris a fortnight ago, the reigning-and doubtless still bemused-champions today offer the challenge of their irrepressible brand of rugby skills to the Irish, whose team-building plans may have been seriously affected by the misfortunes of their final trial, including the injury to key player Mike Gibson: this has meant the inclusion of two new caps in the Irish XV, Barry McGann at fly-half and Jim Davidson at wing-forward.
The twenty-year-old McGann, who plays rugby on Saturdays and amateur soccer on Sundays, is the youngest member of a side which also welcomes the return to international rugby of Noel Murphy, collecting his thirty-eighth cap.

James Cameron's own series of documentary films.

Three hundred years ago, right in the heart of Ireland, the last decisive battle of Irish history was fought and lost. The Irish have never won anything since.
Now the developers have moved in. The tourist promoters, the industrialists, the glossy photographers, the pop-group managers, are tearing the old country apart. In tonight's film James Cameron picks his way through the ruins: 'It's a great place for ruins, Ireland.'

The weekly arts magazine

This week including:
Anthony Caro
A major Arts Council retrospective exhibition of one of the most important English sculptors working today is now on view at the Hayward Gallery, London
Internationally famous, most of his work being bought for American collections, Caro is relatively little known in this country; and yet he is probably the artist who has been the key influence to a whole generation of young sculptors. This film looks at the man and his work.
