Storyline

A group of copper miners, Southern veterans, are terrorized by local rebel-haters, led by deputy Lane Travis. The miners ask stage sharpshooter Johnny Carter to help them, under the impression that he is the legendary Colonel Desmond. It seems they're wrong; but Johnny's show comes to Coppertown and Johnny romances lovely gambler Lisa Roselle, whom the miners believe is at the center of their troubles.

A masterpiece directed by John Farrow
14 October 2004 | by (Paris, France) – See all my reviews

Ray Milland is excellent in this under-estimated western. I would compare Milland to Jimmy Stewart or Gary Cooper. Milland was in Alfred Hitchcock's Dial M for Murder, and he did A Man Alone (he directed it also). Hedy Lamarr, for her only western is marvelous, beautiful. Also appears Harry Carey Jr. But the movie owes a lot to Milland and Lamarr's performances

Magnificent sets. There is a lot of action, except perhaps in the beginning. Great direction by John Farrow, who was going to direct 3 years later Hondo, with Duke Wayne.

This western is a masterpiece, it is perfect. One of the best Paramount western ever made. Unmissable, and unforgettable.
