Quotes

Matt Brown: I gave an order. I expect any man who works for me to obey it.
Chip Donohue: No, it's not what you say that galls me. It's the way you say it.
Matt Brown: You'll get used to it.
Chip Donohue: The question is, do I want to?
Matt Brown: You know when a man works the same job too long, he gets thinking no one else can do it.
Chip Donohue: I guess that makes him as big a fool as the boy who thinks if he gives enough orders, nobody will have time enough to know that most of them don't make sense.

With the right budget it could have been quite a western.
12 November 2004 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

This film has a good story, also good actors, the problem is that it seems that it was done with the lowest budget possible. Terry Moore, who was a pretty, sexy and good actress looks unhappy here (also does not look as pretty as usual) and I had the feeling she left before the film was finished, I could be wrong, but either that or the director did a bad job. Audie Murphy is very good as the irresponsible son of a wealthy man, who suddenly has to either succeed him in administering his property or accept a sum of money and continue with his wasted life.The fact that it was done in black and white in 1959 gives it a certain charm nowadays. It is however curious, considering that Murphy's westerns since the early fifties were always in color. The film goes so fast that one cannot absorb the change in character that Murphy goes through. Still, it is entertaining. I am sure that with the right budget it could have been quite a western.
