Storyline

After a card shark is caught cheating, he is taken out and lynched by the drunkards he was playing against. Soon afterwards, the men who were in the lynch mob start being murdered, one after another; all by hanging, strangling, or smothering. Who will be killed next and who is responsible? Is it one of the original party seeking to cover their accursed deed, or perhaps the mysterious Rev. Jonathan Rudd, who has recently arrived in town? Written by Alfred Jingle

Goofs

When Rev. Rudd opens the cut-out bible before shooting Nick Evers, the left page header shows the chapter is Exodus and the header of right page (the first cut-out page) shows the chapter is Leviticus. Later, when he opens the bible to shoot Van, the left page has a large "Leviticus" chapter title partway down, which it didn't have before. See more »

Unusual star-laden western...a bit haggard at times, but the plot is a good one
17 December 2010 | by (las vegas, nv) – See all my reviews

Tightly-wound tale of bitter revenge, with lots of shooting and a high body count. In the gold-mining town of Rincon, Colorado, a tinhorn cheating at cards is lynched by his fellow poker players, who then find themselves at the mercy of a serial killer intent on picking them off one by one. Strong adaptation of a novel by Ray Gaulden provides the perfect opportunity for Robert Mitchum to get back into preacher's garb (following "The Night of the Hunter"), though Dean Martin as a professional gambler looks a bit piqued around the gills. There's some confusion in the final third regarding an important plot-twist, and Roddy McDowall's sniveling lynch-mob leader is wearing, however the salty mood of the piece and the mercurial characters are intriguing and enjoyable. As sagebrush whodunits go, this one stands fairly tall in an uncrowded genre. Yaphet Kotto is excellent as a no-nonsense bartender, while Inger Stevens provides a smart, sophisticated love-interest for Dino playing a barbershop proprietress-cum-madame (another unusual facet). *** from ****
