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>

Glenn Ford IS Jubal Troop!
28 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I watch this every time it's on cable & never tire of seeing it! The scenery is just beautiful & the acting is superb! You'll love to hate Rod Steiger's "Pinky" character becuz he's so connivingly loathsome. Borgnine is at his 'happy-go-lucky' best. Ford is his honest-to-goodness handsome self. And Charles Bronson is Ford's faithful friend. Ford's love interest plays a Mormon, a natural beauty with a cute little turned-up nose but I don't see her in the credits. Am I missing something? Because she has a very important role in this film! (She also played opposite Richard Widmark in a western but I forgot the name of it.)
