Storyline

Loner Cody trades with the Comanches to get a white girl released. He is joined on his way back to the girl's husband by an outlaw and his sidekicks. It turns out there is a large reward for the return of the girl, and with the Indians on the warpath and the outlaw being an old enemy of Cody's, things are set for several showdowns.

Trivia

There are numerous mentions of the "Stage to Lordsburg," the original title of John Ford's western classic, "Stagecoach", to which writer Kennedy is obviously showing homage. See more »

Goofs

A previous reviewer claims Randolph Scott never "uncinched" his horse prior to flinging it at a rampaging Comanche. My viewing of the TCM print clearly shows Mr. Scott being thrown from his steed after the horse fell, and the saddle coming undone, falling freely to the ground, where it was easily picked up and flung at the Indian.

Quotes

Nancy Lowe: If-if you had a woman taken by the Comanche and-and you got her back... how would you feel knowing...
[implying the sexual component of her capture]
Jefferson Cody: If I loved her, it wouldn't matter.
Nancy Lowe: Wouldn't it?
Jefferson Cody: No ma'am. It wouldn't matter at all.

One of Scott's best movies
23 November 2013 | by (Lafayette, LA) – See all my reviews

A fine, fine movie. It's a movie about a man on a quest to find his wife who was abducted by the Indians. He's been searching for her for ten years. The movie is about staying true to yourself by refusing to forsake your commitments. By chance he runs across another woman who was abducted by Indians, buys her from them, and the relationship between them develops into a close one, but not a romantic one. What's unusual is that this movie is about respect between a man and a woman. It doesn't settle for the easy score. You get the sense that a romantic relationship might have developed between them had it not been for their respective prior commitments, but both of them must stay true to those commitments and to their core sense of themselves.

Scott has never been more laconic. He gets a lot out of a few words and a look. He doesn't play the role; he is that lonely man on what is probably a fruitless quest. When complications arise in the form of outlaw bounty hunters, you see how the Scott character might have turned out if he had no code and no sense of self. What's more, he realizes it. He knows the line that he didn't cross is a thin one, and it's always there. Maybe his wife had something to do with that, but most definitely his commitment to his code does. The young men who have taken a wrong turn are particularly poignant. It's a really well-structured and dramatically developed movie. The ending is touching, exactly right. This was to be Scott's valedictory, but a couple of years later he came back and re-teamed with his great western star rival of the '50s Joel McCrea in what many consider another western masterpiece, Ride the High Country, which also is similar in theme and character.
