Review

A star rating of 2 out of 5.

This routine Randolph Scott western was directed by Gun Crazy's Joseph H Lewis who here fails to secure a satisfactory conclusion to the tale, which results in a particularly soppy ending. After this, producer/star Scott began his marvellous series of Budd Boetticher westerns that eschewed such sentimentality for good. Co-star Angela Lansbury was on her way up, between an MGM contract and Broadway revivalism, long before her popularity in the Murder, She Wrote TV series. And a darn fine western heroine she makes.
