Our Score
In partnership with director Anthony Mann, James Stewart helped change the very nature of the western. This raw tale of vengeance is considerably tougher than Mann's other psychological entries in the genre, with Stewart searching for the man who sold the guns that killed his brother. The infighting between rancher Donald Crisp and sons Alex Nicol and Arthur Kennedy (one natural, one adopted) dominates the action, but the scenes in which Stewart is shot in the hand and the final shoot-out on the cliffs are the ones you'll remember.


A cavalry officer determines to avenge the death of his brother, but rather than target the Apaches who killed him, he vows to go after the gang who supplied them with their weapons - leading to conflict with the sadistic son of an elderly rancher. Anthony Mann's Western, starring James Stewart, Arthur Kennedy, Donald Crisp and Cathy O'Donnell.
