During the fight that ensues in the corral at Bannon's and Bishop's first confrontation, Bannon hits Bishop into a hitching rail which breaks off. The end of one post is seen to be cleanly sawed off instead of splintered and broken off. See more »
A pleasing Western, with a little more grit in it than is usually found in one of the 1950s. It starts with Zarata's brutally shooting of an innocent onlooker - the hero Ned Bannon - then emptying his water bottle and leaving him to die, Hardy's beating up his ranch-hand who didn't prevent his cattle being rustled, Ellen's (distant) nude bathe, and then her attempted rape - and she also has a "past".
It was a little difficult to follow Hardy's changes in personality: his over-harsh treatment of his ranch-hand, his threatening of Ned, followed by him accepting him back into the ranch after a fist-fight, then the change of heart after Ellen's son plaintive question, "Why do you hate us"? Virgina Mayo is as eye-catching as ever, and Leo Gordon shows a great deal of screen personality. I've a feeling that McCrea had at least seven bullets in his six-shooter in the final showdown, but I'll leave others to do their own count.
It was nice to see James Dobson on the big screen; his filmography suggests a good career, but I remember him best as a trooper in the old 1950s TV series "Boots and Saddles".
