Did You Know?


Wade Harrington claimed that part of Domino's ranch is public land so that Domino had no claim to it and couldn't use it, yet Wade built a dam on it. He was saying Domino can't use it because it's public land, but then he used it. Makes absolutely no sense. See more »

Domino: Time I'm on my way.

Domino: Why?
Cantina owner: There is to be a gunfight between an Americano named Strangas and the man they call "Domino".
Domino: How do you know?
Cantina owner: The man in the telegraph station is my brother-in-law. This Domino sent the telegram that Strangas meet him in the street here at 8:00 in the morning. You might get hurt, senor.

Plenty of suspense in this post-Civil War western!
9 May 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Veteran cowboy director Ray Nazarro came up with a winner with this fast-moving little oater. Just goes to show what a good script can do with a less than sterling budget. Rory Calhoun plays the title role, a war veteran returning west to avenge his murdered father (there were five of 'em, but who was the *fifth* man?). A series of successful shoot-outs bring Rory to the final showdown, not only with adversaries Andrew Duggan and Peter Witney, but with his own sense of justice and revenge. Helping him along are Kristine Miller and Robert Burton (who, like in just about every other minor western of the 1950's, plays the honest sheriff). A good performance by Eugene Inglesias as Domino's boyhood friend adds to the just-north-of-the-border ambiance of this comptetent film. An all-around enjoyable treat!
