Review

A star rating of 4 out of 5.

An excellent Randolph Scott western, with the star somewhat unusually cast in a love triangle involving Joan Leslie and Alexander Knox. John Russell, perhaps better known for being the baddie in Rio Bravo and Pale Rider, is a terrific tight-lipped villain and has a great punch-up with Scott, while Ellen Drew's schoolmarm, with whom Randy holes up in the mountains, makes a very sexy other woman. Finely directed by the underrated Andre De Toth, the film contains some marvellous Technicolor night scenes. Great stuff.
