Our Score
In this well-written but essentially by-the-numbers western from director Jesse Hibbs, Audie Murphy is up against a crooked sheriff and a corrupt lawyer as he seeks revenge for the murder of his rancher father and kid brother. Susan Cabot plays the nice girl, while Abbe Lane is the far more interesting saloon singer. Dan Duryea's rich performance as a likeable badman steals the film from the ever stolid Murphy, and Jack Elam registers as one of the bad guys.


A gunslinger is devastated when his entire family are murdered, and sets out to find those responsible. Along the way, he encounters a mercenary who has been hired to finish him off - but events take an unexpected turn as the duo end up joining forces. Western, starring Audie Murphy, Dan Duryea, Susan Cabot, Abbe Lane and Russell Johnson.
