Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

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.
