Goofs

In the shootout at the end, the rifle is clearly a small bore .22 caliber single-shot bolt action. However, the sound effects with each shot sounds as though it is a large caliber gun, with a loud boom and crack. See more »

A Perfect Title So So Film
18 April 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

With that title one would expect either a western, a p.i./cop dark streets noir,or a war drama. Well it's in the West on a sheep ranch and Rory Calhoun is the protagonist. Jean Simmons is there to provide the standard romantic figure but is way too sophisticated to be believed as a outland waif. Stephen McNally like his contemporary Charles McGraw just looks of villainy so its surprising when he carries a badge while Mr. Ahearne like his screen daughter just looks out of place. So one gets a character study instead of a shootalot as the title implies. The actors do the script,the director sees his slide continuing,and the viewer wonders why the title wasn't used by Randolph Scott for one of his Ranown epics.
