Despite the fact that Nora Willoughby recognizes it as one of the band assailant, decides not to tell her husband to avoid another death as that of his son. This is a good film of Western, with marvelous performances as the John Payne and Ruth Roman, also highlights of Ben Jonson and J. Carrol Naish. Has a great photography in black and white. What more i liked the film, is the dispute between the decision to Nora to avoid another death as that of his son, and the desire for revenge very frequent in infinity of scripts of films Western. It is a movie well done and very amusing to see.
