Goofs

When John Stewart and Wick Campbell have their showdown, John draws and fires his revolver. There is the sound of a shot, but Stewart doesn't actually fire the weapon. He never cocks it and the hammer never moves in order to discharge a round. Also, there is no muzzle flash or gun smoke. See more »

Quotes

John Stewart: [just prior to a shootout] Make your first shot count, Drucker!
Al Drucker: [with confidence] I always do.

A Western Study of Sexual Obsession
5 January 2007 | by (Amsterdam, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

A great looking movie with unusual touches that set it apart from most other westerns of the period and put on a par or beyond some of the later Bud Boetticher films.

The reality is so heightened and the sexual obsession so strong throughout that I was reminded of Nicholas Ray's classic Johnny Guitar. Although there's no need for Joan Crawford here. The men (good and bad) are as pretty as the girls and the violence is in places grueling with a twist in the final shootout (they don't use guns) that was surprisingly effective.

For these reasons the film scored an unexpected 10 from me. Sony's DVD release is beautifully cleaned up. Watch it and enjoy.
