Review

A star rating of 3 out of 5.

This rather dark western was horror producer Val Lewton's last film. Stephen McNally is excellent as the ne'er-do-well who helps defend a community from an Apache attack and Coleen Gray (The Killing) also acquits herself well. Argentinian director Hugo Fregonese proves a dab hand at action and isn't daunted by the movie's obviously low budget. The short running time helps keep everything tense, too.
