Storyline

Ex-sheriff Ben Stride tracks the seven men who held up a Wells Fargo office and killed his wife. Stride is tormented by the fact that his own failure to keep his job was the cause of his wife's working in the express office and thus he is partly responsible for her death. Stride encounters a married couple heading west for California and helps them. Along the way they are joined by two n'er-do-wells, Masters and Clete, who know that Stride is after the express-office robbers. They plan to let Stride lead them to the bandits, then make away with the loot themselves. But they aren't the only ones carrying a secret. Written by Jim Beaver <jumblejim@prodigy.net>

Trivia

For her first scene, Gail Russell had to be covered in mud and help pull the wagon through the mud pit. Although the crew was worried about her, she was a real trooper and spent six hours covered in mud and cold from the water. The director didn't want her to look like she had had mud applied by the make-up artists. To everyone's surprise, she did a perfect nose fall into the mud hole and came up very realistic. See more »

Goofs

When Lee Marvin remarks that it looks like rain, there are clouds in the sky, but in the next cut to Scott and Russell the sky is clear and azure blue. See more »

"B" western masterpiece with clever villain & rugged hero!
13 October 2000 | by (New York, NY) – See all my reviews

A "B" western made so well it evolved into a masterpiece. The film is just as noteworthy for what it shows as what it leaves to your imagination. With a clever, complex villain that you gradually learn to care about, to a rugged, silent-type, lantern jawed hero. Randolph Scott plays the damaged hero, a former sheriff whose wife is killed during a robbery he can't prevent. His vendetta is against the seven men involved know his pursuit will be as relentlessly and inevitable as the passage of time. Motivated, complex characters and a simple but gripping plot add up to a truly memorable experience.
