DESERT SHOOTER aka THE SHOOTER

This rarely seen 1997, straight to video, little gem of a western starring Michael (AMERICAN NINJA) Dudikoff who's very credible in this western role and featuring our friend William Smith (nuff said) will air on Encore Westerns on March the 2nd in the early morning hours from 5-630am (PT).  My video copy (I think from CineMax) is titled just THE SHOOTER. Pretty darn good direction from Fred Olen Ray....so set your tivo's!  Wonder why Dudikoff has not acted since 2002?  His next to last job was in our friend Jim Wynorski's GALE FORCE (2002).

Robert Quarry who died last weekend is also in this film and even if you don't care for Dudikoff he's qute good in this small B western. I wouldn't get up to watch it but if you can record it do it and watch it later.

Thanks for the tip. I'll set the tvo and check it out. Come to think of it I haven't seen Nikki Fritz since she worked with Jim! Maybe there's a connection?
