Action-Emotions-Passion... and SARA MONTIEL !!!
16 April 2003 | by (Las Palmas de Gran Canaria, Spain) – See all my reviews

Excellent and strange western co-produced among Mexico and US that does not fall before other films of this genre directed by specialists as John Ford, Henry Hathaway, Delmer Daves or John Sturges. This film itself about enough in style to Allan Dwan or Rudolph Maté with an unmistakably Mexican flavor.

The presence of the great Spanish actress Sara Montiel and of the marvelous one Veronica Lake turn out to be very wise.

And there are, of course, all the ingredients of the western: pursuits, shots, horses, hard men and beautiful women.. Unforgettable.
