Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: This is a small picture, but it does have a cryptic defiance and an aura of snakelike evil that gets one. – Howard Thompson, New York Times, Mar 12, 2015

Fresh: Cooper gives a characteristically virile performance, his dominance of the outlaws quietly believable, while London achieves some touching and convincing moments in a difficult role. – Variety Staff, Variety, Mar 12, 2015

Fresh: This late CinemaScope western by the great Anthony Mann achieves a tragic intensity and a monumental scenic splendor despite some serious handicaps. – Jonathan Rosenbaum, Chicago Reader, Mar 12, 2015

Fresh: Mann's direction is immaculate, making Reginald Rose's clearly allegorical, and sometimes forced, screenplay seem even better than it is. – Derek Malcolm, Guardian, Mar 12, 2015

Best Western Ever!!

All I can say is if you like classics, and if you like Gary, and if you like westerns, this is the movie for you!!!!!! THE BEST WETERN EVER!!! And, personally, I think one of Gary's best movies!!!!! packed with a great cast and a outstanding plot, it's a gotta see it to believe it movie for sure;)


What a great surprise. I'm sixty-three and can only say how did I miss this one. My brother and I watched with great interest as this priceless western unfolded and revealed once again that Anthony Mann and this cast of actors were why such classic westerns exist. What a prize! Don't miss this one!

Mean, vicious, dark.

Too mean, vicious and dark to enjoy. Don't see the point, really.
