Abosrbing western with Robert Taylor in the lead

This is an absorbing western with Robert Taylor as the famous outlaw. Of course the facts are not bothered with - Hollywood just dishes up a ripe bit of western lore that is really only meant to entertain, not enlighten. The Technicolor cinematography was deservedly Oscar nominated. It's competent and well done and certainly worth a look if you are a fan of westerns.
