Quotes

Nardo Denning: In case you're interested, Cameron, your wife's behavior with me tonight has been impeccable.
Ben Cameron: I'm just a farmer, Denning, I don't know what the word "impeccable" means. If it means what it sounds like, uh, congratulations.

A first-class B movie
31 March 2007 | by (Derry, Ireland) – See all my reviews

A first class B movie from the redoubtable Allan Dwan who, over the years, became something of an expert in making silk purses out of sow's ears. Not that this resembles anything like a sow's ear. It's got a decent script and good performances from Ray Milland as the cold-hearted killer trying to get across the border into Mexico with a suitcase full of money and Anthony Quinn as the farmer who is taking him there. What gives the film its kick is that none of it's three protagonists, (the third, Debra Paget, is the farmer's wife who happens to be the killer's former partner), is particularly noble, (indeed all display varying degrees of rottenness), and all are psychologically very well drawn. It's also very handsomely shot in wide-screen and combines studio and location work to good effect.
