A very good western, beset by technical difficulties
Loosley based on Mckinley Kantor's novel "Wicked Water", and paralleling the life of outlaw Tom Horn, this film was originaly released in 1953 in color and 3D. Carey is delicious as the villan, Ireland is the Marshall sent to bring him in and Dru provides the love interest. Great title song by Stan Jones,Ireland's only stab at Direction. Orginal release in 3D was fuzzy, blurred-re-released in 1954 in B&W and 'flat,' under the title "Hannah Lee" and shortly thereafter appear on TV. Referring to the film in his later years, Carey stated "A house of wax it wasn't!" Well worth viewing.
