Did You Know?

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: You know, Campbell, you're not thinking straight. Since you became a big man, you have the idea that everything should be done the way you want it, and that's dangerous. Better straighten yourself out before someone does it for you.
Wick Campbell: You, Stewart?
John Stewart: Possibly.

Range war fails to ignite.
5 November 2009 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Ten Wanted Men (the title hints at something far more dramatic than is actually in the picture} is a serviceable, but instantly forgettable, Western from the Scott-Brown production company. Directed by jobber H. Bruce Humberstone, with a screenplay by Kenneth Gamet {from a story by Irving Ravetch} and filmed in Technicolor out in Old Tuscon, it feels {and is} lifeless and poor on structure and execution. With some misplaced humour and a cobbled together plot, this ultimately ends up as a time filler for Randy Scott completists only. There's some enjoyment to be had from watching our Randy lob dynamite around, and Leo Gordon steals the movie as menacing villain Frank Scavo. But it never comes together to make a worthy mark. And when a cast list contains Randolph Scott, Richard Boone, Lee Van Cleef, Skip Homeier and Dennis Weaver-that's a crime as much as it is a shame. 4/10
