Review

Our Score
A very fine adult western, made by the same team (including director John Sturges and producer Hal Wallis) that worked on Gunfight at the OK Corral, with Kirk Douglas again in a starring role. Here, Douglas is at his most intense as a man seeking revenge following the rape and murder of his wife. Anthony Quinn makes a tough adversary, and the rich Technicolor and VistaVision photography by Charles Lang Jr is exemplary. Not a film for the squeamish but, for discerning admirers of the classic western form, this is a superior example: intelligent, finely wrought and exceptionally well cast.

Summary

A marshal discovers the man responsible for raping and killing his wife is actually the son of an old friend, setting the scene for a showdown. Western, starring Kirk Douglas, Anthony Quinn, Brian Hutton and Carolyn Jones.
