Actually pretty good
29 July 2002 | by (Delaware) – See all my reviews

While watching this on TV the thought came to be that this is a neo-realist American Western. Then I realized it was made at the height of the Italian neo-realist craze. This movie is worth seeing. There is great chemistry between Slade and his woman, Dorothy Malone.
