When Johnny Carter (Ray Milland) rides into a creek on his horse near the end of the story, both horse and rider completely submerge, but when they come out, Carter's shirt is mostly dry with a small wet patch. See more »

Ray Milland is excellent in this under-estimated western. I would compare Milland to Jimmy Stewart or Gary Cooper. Milland was in Alfred Hitchcock's Dial M for Murder, and he did A Man Alone (he directed it also). Hedy Lamarr, for her only western is marvelous, beautiful. Also appears Harry Carey Jr. But the movie owes a lot to Milland and Lamarr's performances
Magnificent sets. There is a lot of action, except perhaps in the beginning. Great direction by John Farrow, who was going to direct 3 years later Hondo, with Duke Wayne.
This western is a masterpiece, it is perfect. One of the best Paramount western ever made. Unmissable, and unforgettable.
