Review

Our Score
John Wayne's production company made this modestly budgeted Randolph Scott western and it turned out so well that the Duke wished he'd starred in it himself. Burt Kennedy's lean script has Scott grimly tracking down the seven men who killed his wife during a hold-up, with Lee Marvin's gunman following close behind hoping to grab the loot that they've hidden. Wayne gave his former Angel and the Badman co-star Gail Russell the female lead. Director Budd Boetticher makes terrific use of outdoor settings and he, Scott and Kennedy teamed up on three more outstanding westerns: The Tall T, Ride Lonesome and Comanche Station.

Summary

A former sheriff embarks on a mission to hunt down the seven men responsible for killing his wife during a hold-up at a coaching station. As the vengeful widower closes in on the criminals and their stolen money, a gunman looking to claim the loot is hot on his heels. Western, starring Randolph Scott, Gail Russell and Lee Marvin.
