Quotes

Cass Silver, Marshal Flat Rock Kansas: Just a minute, boys. I know you're anxious to get into town and cut loose; well, the people in town are waitin' for you. You're the first trail crew to come in here and I don't want any trouble, so let's keep everything nice and peaceful. Anybody draws a gun, I got to go to work... I don't like hard work. My goal is to be the oldest living marshal west of Kansas City.
[laughter from cowhands]
Cass Silver, Marshal Flat Rock Kansas: If it was me, I'd leave half my pay with George here. No sense in blowing it all and getting mad. ...

See this before you see Rio Bravo
25 September 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Another great performance by the vastly underrated Robert Ryan. The entire film has a nuanced and adult tone, completely lacking from Rio Bravo, which seems to be a rip-off by Hawks. This film belongs in the company of High Noon, The Ox-bow Incident and damn few other Westerns for the intelligence and seriousness of the script. Ryan's performance alone makes this film watchable and undated, 50 years after. How many other films can say that? Also worth mentioning are the performances of Virginia Mayo as a hard headed business woman, and Walter Brennan. Brennan with hardly any lines of dialog, manages to do more with a newspaper for a prop, and with looks between him and Ryan, then most actors can do when they're chewing the scenery.
