Quotes

Stew Shallis: Did you ever get hit with a bullet? It's like a hunk of iron ripping and tearing into you. It sets you on fire inside. Sometimes you don't die right away. You just bleed and hurt for a long time.

Routine Scott Western.
26 March 2005 | by (Deming, New Mexico, USA) – See all my reviews

Not a bad movie, it stars Randolph Scott as a man whose wife has been killed by the heavy (MacReady) and who spends the rest of the story tracking him down and whittling away at both his empire and his nerves.

Scott looks fine physically, as usual. MacReady is suitably villainous. He looks so awesomely Teutonic. Come to think of it, as a revenge Western, this should have been directed by Fritz Lang.

That probably would have helped a good deal because Ray Enright's direction never rises above the functionally mediocre. Actors go where they are supposed to go and say what they are supposed to say, and that's about it. But then the whole film is routine. The characters are pretty simple. Two men fight and tumble into a shack and the balsam wood boards scatter like feathers. The script is equally prosaic. The comic sidekick, Wally Ford, adds an obligato to some of his lines -- "I reckon." (Amusing.) The cast has a lot of familiar faces who aren't asked to do very much with their one-dimensional characters. The three actresses are fundamentally uninteresting.

It isn't terrible. What I mean is that it's not a cheap B Western with telephone poles in the background. It's just that, considering some of Scott's other Westerns, it rather groans and creaks.
