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>

excellent western with great actors, great scenery and colors.
7 July 2005 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Delmer Daves directed many westerns and Jubal is probably his best. Everything went right in this film, the beautiful scenery, the music and the actors. Glenn Ford, Ernest Borgnine, Rod Steiger, Charles Bronson and also two western old timers Noah Beery Jr. and Jack Elam. The story is also unusual, about Jubal, a man that always ran away from trouble, but decides not run any more. But circumstances turn against him when Mae (Valerie French), his boss's wife tries to seduce him. There is no way he can come out of it not scarred, we know that from a long time ago, from Joseph in the Bible. Also the woman he falls in love with, Naomi (Felicia Farr) is to be wed to another man. This is one of the rare times when I enjoyed a film (in DVD with widescreen and great colors) more than when I saw it for the first time in 1956.
