Fox reused the music score from The Day the Earth Stood Still (1951) by Bernard Herrmann in this picture, much to his regret. He was outraged, and told the studio executives what he thought of it when he received notice from the Musicians' Union in 1958. See more »
can you say "gothic, psychologically gripping, oater?"
I must confess that I saw this movie an awful long time ago, when I was just a kid. However, it made a big impression on me and it blended genres in a way that I hadn't ever seen a film before. The story sort of reminds me of "Psycho," but set in the old west, and to a lesser degree, set in some deserted shipyards and other industrial locations. Anyhow, ever since I've been dying to see it again. Filmed in beautifully harsh and stark black and white.
