This one is really good!
2 June 2005 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

I saw the trailer of this film when I was less than ten years old, here in Brazil, where it was named "A Fogo e a Sangue". I was fascinated by the few scenes I saw, specially one that shows Stephen McNally boxing. The scenery and color cinematography were astonishing. Being underage I could not see the film. I saw it recently, more than fifty years after and went through a great Proustian experience. Unlike many westerns that age and become naive or too predictable or full of clichés, this one maintains its appeal. McNally is the detective that is sent to find out who is behind a continuous robbery of the train carrying mail. He was boxing for a living and does not want to give it up for a low salary, but when he takes a good look at his face, and sees how it is becoming deformed, he decides to carry on the mission. Alexis Smith is the saloon singer he falls in love with, she is quite a presence. McNally pretends he is an outlaw and is sent to prison where he becomes friendly with one of the key members of the gang. There are constant scenes of action, and never a dull moment. This is a really good one.
