Highly Recommended
22 February 2001 | by (Houston, TX) – See all my reviews

I've seen this several times on AMC and locally so I'm surprised it has less than 5 votes as of this writing date. Anyway, it is a taut, lean, western mystery that also serves as a well-drawn character study of what happens to friendship and love when one is falsely accused. Very well acted by Dana Andrews, Dianne Foster (very underrated actress - also see The Last hurrah and the Kentuckian), Donna Reed, James Westerfield, Stephen Elliott, and Whit Bissell. Very well directed, too. 9/10.
