B-Western in b&w CinemaScope - average, nothing special
11 December 2000 | by (Putney, VT) – See all my reviews

Regal Films seems to have been a Fox subsidiary for the production of grade B films during the fifties. This one was filmed in black and white CinemaScope and oddly enough earned an Oscar nomination for Cinematography. The camera work was only adequate - odd that Academy voters reached into the "B" bag in 1956 - either must have not been enough quality in the major studio b&w productions, or studio politics once again. In any case this is of the calibre one sees in early television westerns, not "movies." The acting is adequate, the direction practically non-existant and the sets pretty basic. It's all done on the cheap (even a scene in a supposedly full bar room only shows us two characters with crowd noises off supposedly giving us the effect of a full bar). The atmospheric musical score by Paul Dunlap was the only thing worthy of Oscar consideration. The plot does not grab and the flashbacks are quite poorly handled - there is no tension at all in a plot situation screaming for it. Picture a Monogram Studio western and you have the picture. Unless you're a dyed-in-the-wool Western fan, don't bother.
