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.
