All dressed in white ,except in the last sequences,Yvonne De Carlo reigns over the movie.At the time,IMHO,only Ava Gardner surpassed her in beauty.So we can forgive Robert Parish if he often forgets his script which is rather desultory for a western and anyway is not much interesting in the first place .You can't make new things out of (already) old :a tycoon who wants to have the whole town under his thumb (Sidney Blackmer was a fine villain,remember Roman Castevet?),shameless politician,bribery and corruption... and a noble hero played by aging Joel McCrea who could be De Carlo's father.His first line when he sees the hanged man is full of humor.
Parrish made better westerns in the late fifties such as "saddle the wind" and " the wonderful country".His foray into sci-fi gave an (overlooked) memorable movie: "Journey to the far side of the sun" aka "doppelganger".
