Review

Our Score
If John Ford's 1939 film was not such a revered classic, this remake might have got less insulting reviews. It's no masterpiece, but it's not a total disaster, either, and the producers shrewdly decided against filming in Monument Valley, electing for the plains and mountains of Colorado instead. As the Ringo Kid, Alex Cord is certainly no John Wayne, but Van Heflin and Ann-Margret contribute solid performances. It's also notable as being Bing Crosby's final big-screen appearance. Connoisseurs might spot the celebrated American artist Norman Rockwell among the townspeople, and his paintings provide the backgrounds to the credit titles.

Summary

A group of strangers, including a drunken doctor, a pregnant army officer's wife and an embezzling bank clerk, embarks on a dangerous journey across hostile territory. They are joined by an outlaw, falsely accused of murder, who helps them when a Sioux war party attacks. Remake of John Ford's Western, with Bing Crosby and Ann-Margret.
