Our Score
In this psychological western, taciturn Gregory Peck tracks down the four outlaws that he believes raped and murdered his wife. This is evidently a parable about revenge and redemption, but what could have been a good story isn't imbued with the emotional conviction it needs from either Peck or the usually capable director Henry King (The Gunfighter). Joan Collins co-stars as Peck's love interest in an underwritten role, and future spaghetti western star Lee Van Cleef is among the gang that Peck is pursuing.


A widower visits a town where the men he believes murdered his wife are about to be hanged. When they escape from jail, he takes the law into his own hands and decides to hunt down and kill the fugitives. But over time, he begins to question whether his actions are right. Western, starring Gregory Peck, Joan Collins and Stephen Boyd.
