I now ask you, sir, do you remember the names Charlie Monger, Red Dog Johnson or Carlos Rameriez?
The incident may be too trivial to recall. But isn't it true that you summarily hanged three of these men on the afternoon of June 4th?
They were stealing my cattle!
I thought you didn't remember them.
I didn't ask their names!
You just hanged 'em?
By the neck until they were dead. They were thieves!

This was a little bit different of a western in that a significant segment of the film deals with a trial. Spencer Tracy is excellent as always, this time playing a rough patriarch, head of the "Devereaux" family. In fact, he's the main attraction of the movie despite a bunch of well- known actors and actresses in here.
Of the rest of that crew - Robert Wagner, Jean Peters, Richard Widmark, Katy Jurado, Hugh O'Brien, Earl Holliman, Eduard Frans and E.G. Marshall - only Widmark plays a memorable character.
If the story was a memorable as the cast this would have been super. As it was, it was pretty forgettable, and I am a big fan of westerns. Irs disappointing.
