Despite this film starring Clark Gable, Cameron Mitchell and Robert Ryan, it's not exactly the most exciting or interesting film I've ever seen. In fact, with these stars I really expected something more memorable. Instead, it's an unusual but completely ordinary Western about a kidnapping and Gable and Mitchell hiding out with Jane Russell. The dialog is pretty far-fetched and the story just seems to drag. Maybe part of it was because the movie was often set in the middle of winter during a snow storm--this couldn't help but give the movie a certain degree of claustrophobia--keeping much of the "action" indoors. While I am not saying it's a bad film, there are better ones and unless you are a die-hard fan, try watching some other Gable or Ryan film first.
