then this movie is great one to watch. I really don't understand all the love for this movie, but accept that it is what it is.
For me, the script and screen writing is pure high school level. There is simply no rhythm to this film. The acting, given the quality of script, is not bad, though wasted. The relationship between Reed and Widmark develops implausibly. In fact, every relationship in this less than epic oater develops with with an expedition better suited to humor an audience than to lasso them into believability.
A sample: The scene where Widmark takes the dead deputy into Silver City is ridiculous. The "sheriff" (Ed Platt) doesn't even ask the circumstances surrounding the death of his deputy and makes force-less demands of Widmark to remove his gun. Next thing you know, Widmark and Reed are ordered out of town. For what?? Defending themselves?? What does not make sense here is that Platt is demanding accountability from Widmark and Reed, but none from aggrieved brothers of the dead deputy. Silly.
The whole film is loaded with these sorts of inconsistencies.
Reed is gorgeous and thus competes agreeably with the natural beauty of the western landscape where this film was shot.
A lot of stars perform in this effort, but not a lot of stars in my rating.
