Kathy wasn't home so I was a bachelor and this looked like a guy movie. I liked the pen drawings and the plight of the Irish immigrant start. It is a Western and there are some great landscapes and period costumes. The whippings are odd, not sure how they get the cross hatch pattern, whips go across easily, up and down takes a bit more effort. I could not follow the plot, it almost seemed like it was "life sucks". This one is not going to stay on the bookshelf, got to make room for other movies.
