Storyline

Found injured by rancher Shep Horgan, Jubal Troop is offered a job as cowhand and soon gains Shep's trust. Mae Horgan, feeling she's been trapped into marriage with Shep, takes a shine to Jubal, although he is more interested in Naomi Hoktor who is travelling with a wagon train camped on Shep's land. Pinky, until now top hand and used to Mae's favours himself, doesn't think much of the new deal and trouble is inevitable. Written by Jeremy Perkins <jwp@aber.ac.uk>

Brooding machismo
8 April 2006 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Western drama verging on cowboy soap opera, given typically florid, overheated Delmer Daves direction. Ranch-hand Glenn Ford attempts to avoid the flirtatious advances of his boss's wife, but lingering doubts and gossip eventually turn the situation violent. If this sounds familiar, think Shakespeare's "Othello" in chaps. The terrific male stars (Ford, Ernest Borgnine, Rod Steiger, and, in a lesser role, Charles Bronson) are much better than the screenplay, which has them arguing over a woman (Valerie French) who hardly seems worth the trouble. Still, it looks good and builds to a tense, if overripe, conclusion. **1/2 from ****
