Excellent showcase for Murphy
20 September 2001 | by See all my reviews

Audie Murphy had to endure a lot of unflattering remarks about his acting, much of which he took on the chin as he never thought highly of the profession in the first place or considered himself to be an actor. However, he often sold himself short and this movie is a case in point. Murphy brings his usual quiet authority to a role that goes against type - a refreshing change indeed! As a man whose reputation precedes him, John Gant, Audie's character, is cold and calculating, scary and intimidating without even trying. One wonders just how much of the real Audie Murphy was projected. This is one of the few roles that allowed him to shine, not as an exhibitionist (he was a modest man) but to show that he really could act when given quality material. Universal made a lot of money out of Audie's movies and in the process didn't encourage him to stretch his acting abilities with challenging roles but were content to have him churning out the staple sagebrushes. They missed out on an excellent opportunity and in the process, dealt Audie a not so good deal as his name became synonymous with 'routine' Westerns and poor acting. Check out this movie and see just how good Audie was and how much more he could have given.

Audie looking good!
