Storyline

A cattle baron takes in an orphaned boy and raises him, causing his own son to resent the boy. As they get older the resentment festers into hatred, and eventually the real son frames his stepbrother for fathering an illegitimate child that is actually his, seeing it as an opportunity to get his half-brother out of the way so he can have his father's empire all to himself.

Trivia

This is one of a handful of Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer productions of the 1950-1951 period whose original copyrights were never renewed and are now apparently in Public Domain; for this reason this title is now offered, often in very inferior copies, at bargain prices, by numerous VHS and DVD distributors who do not normally handle copyrighted or Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer material.

Quotes

[first lines]
Hewie: I got a story to tell - a yarn about cow country, cow punchers and men. I was workin' for the Strobie Ranch, a trade of worn leather and saddle blisters and brandin' irons. A trade with some song, some fun and some luck. It was as good a job as a man could ask for. Lonely sometimes and cold - so much distance you'd have thought you'd never get back - but for me, a young kid, it was a fine time. Memories are mostly good. You're up on top of the world where the air is clean and thin ...

Lancaster is terrific as a honorable and tough cowboy
10 November 2005 | by See all my reviews

The movie concerns about a baron cattle ( Ray Collins ) who takes a foreman named Owen ( Burt Lancaster ) as his own son , originating in the legitimate named Lee ( Rober Walker ) an enormous resentment for the adopted brother . An illegitimate child of Lee and Lily ( Sally Forrest ) creates more problems when the brothers ( John Ireland , Hugh O'Brian ) from her , along with a mean gunslinger ( Ted De Corsia ) are looking for revenge . Lee married to Jean ( Joanne Dru ) is seeing an opportunity to obtain his father's cattle.

The movie is a good western with extraordinary landscapes that were shot on location in natural parks of Montana and Arizona territory . The picture has action western , drama , round-up , horseman pursuits and is quite entertaining. It's the first Burt Lancaster's Western and as always , he plays a honest and upright character , similarly he played in ¨Unforgiven¨ ( John Huston ). Robert Walker is fine in his last film because being early deceased at thirty two years old , he's specially known by ¨ Strangers on the train ¨ ( Alfred Hitchcock ). George Folsey's cinematography is glimmer and colorful as is reflected on the breathtaking and spellbound outdoors , however the photography is a little worn-out. Art direction by Cedric Gibbons , he's the greatest production designer by the time and of Metro Goldwyn Mayer ( film producer ). The movie attained lukewarm reception by the public , achieved a moderated success , however a similar film titled ¨ Red River ¨ ( Howard Hawks ), also with the same protagonist , the attractive Joanne Dru , was much better as reviews as box office . The motion picture will appeal to Burt Lancaster fans and western genre enthusiasts.
