When the first gang member lies in ambush, he is seen crawling past a large green shrub and behind broken blades of dry grass. After he is spotted by Jim Douglas and the camera cuts back to him, the exact same shot is repeated as though it is happening further along in the story. See more »
The first thing that let's you know this isn't what you expect in a western is Peck from the beginning seems more like his character in "Moby Dick" than "To Kill a Mockingbird" . Any movie with a twisted (and uncredited) performance by Joe DeRita ("Curly Joe") of the Stooges has to take off in strange directions . To give away too much of the plot would be cruel ("Sixth Sensish") . Ninety eight minutes well spent;still holds up after all these years (super cast of supporters);makes "The Searchers" seem normal.
