Trivia

This film was shot in 3-D. However, director Raoul Walsh only had one eye, so he was never able to see the film in the process in which he shot it. The same situation occurred when director André De Toth, who also had only on eye, shot the 3-D film House of Wax (1953). See more »

Goofs

Frank (Philip Carey) pistol-whips Jess (Leo Gorden) and gun is lost in ensuing fight. Jess's holster is empty as he pushes Jennifer (Donna Reed) through to adjoining room and gun is holstered as he emerges. See more »

Rock and Donna on the way up
11 May 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Beautiful looking western in dazzling Technicolor is otherwise an ordinary affair but does have Rock Hudson and Donna Reed both on the cusp of bigger things. Donna made From Here to Eternity the same year as this and although it didn't really enhance her movie fortunes it raised her fame level easing her transition to TV fame as the perfect homemaker. Rock would break out of the B's the next year with Magnificent Obsession that turned him into box office gold for years. This film does have a good pace and a hissable villain in Phil Carey plus an early peek at Lee Marvin. For western fans or admirers of the stars this should be an enjoyable view.
