good colorful western about a hanging Judge
3 May 2008 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This film did not age, has a very good story from Borden Chase and a great performance by Glenn Ford. It also has William Holden, quite an actor. It tells the story of Deveraux(Ford), a compulsive killer who becomes a judge. Holden is Del Stewart, Deveraux's best friend who tries to stop his unnecessary killing. The problem of the film is the simplistic way it tries to explain Ford's need for killing. It shows it like a drug addiction. It is much more complex than that and Ford was perfectly able to show it with no need for the words he writes in his diary. At the beginning of the film Ford is responsible for killing confederate soldiers which are showing a white flag. When he returns home as a hero, he becomes a Judge that does not think twice before hanging. It makes you think of Judge Roy Bean. Good DVD copy, one of the few westerns made in color in the forties. Borden Chase would write a few years after, the notorious Winchester 73.
