Dennis Morgan is a gambler forced in exchange for his freedom to capture a notorious outlaw who calls himself "The Poet" and leaves poems on the money box. On the hotel he meets Jane Wyman and they have a tempestuous relationship from the beginning, but that is what make the film so good. Wyman has a stern face, but when she smiles she melts Morgan and the spectators. Janis Paige is the other woman who in a way is prettier than Wyman, but lacks her stern charm (in the movie), but manages to sing very well. Arthur Kennedy is Sundance, an excellent bad guy, but in a minor role. Some very good scenes of the outlaws in numerous horses chasing the stagecoach, might even be stock footage. Very well built screenplay, will leave no one bored. Raoul Walsh directs and delivers a good western, that should be more known, but perhaps because of its title, got lost in time and in the the number of westerns that used the same name.
