Our Score
1940s beauty Hedy Lamarr had just made something of a comeback in the blockbuster Samson and Delilah when Paramount put her in this intriguing western, set just after the Civil War and directed by John Farrow (Mia's father). The script is by Jonathan Latimer, better known for film noirs such as The Big Clock, also directed by Farrow. Beautiful colour photography by Oscar-winning Charles Lang enhances the action, while Ray Milland is well cast as a Confederate officer working undercover to foil crooks out to exploit festering north-south antagonisms for their own benefit.


A performing sharpshooter is asked to help a beleaguered group of copper miners. Western, starring Ray Milland, Hedy Lamarr and Macdonald Carey.
