A band of vigilantes catch Jed Cooper and, incorrectly believing him guilty of cattle rustling and murder, hang him and leave him for dead. But he doesn't die. He returns to his former profession of lawman to hunt down his lynchers and bring them to justice. Written by

CASTLE THUNDER: Heard several times during the rain after Jed and Rachel's picnic. See more »
When Jed is walking outside, just before entering the saloon where he will kill Reno, he has two shadows. Inside the saloon, he casts two shadows too (but this could be due to two oil lamps). See more »
A rather unusual western movie for its period, with interesting ideas on the practice of justice and death punishment, not consistent with the myth of the frontier as always portraited in such kind of cinema. Even though Eastwood only appears as an actor, a good preview of what was about to happen in his career as a director, with The outlaw Josey Wales and, above all, The unforgiven. Rated 7.
