Due to the lack of men after the Civil War, a small western town allows a bachelorette with ulterior motives to save a horse thief from the gallows by marrying him. They must deal with his old gang, the Sheriff, the bank, and each other.
This remake of the 1946 movie of the same name accounts an affair between a seedy drifter and a seductive wife of a roadside café owner. This begins a chain of events that culminates in murder. Written by
Craig Clarke <email@example.com>
(at around 1h 35 mins) When Cora walks to the door of the café after coming back from her mother's, her zipper and zipper pull show. What we see is an "invisible" zipper which were not invented until the early 1960's. See more »
Average remake drama movie that was almost good but ruined by a very weak ending.The acting was good and so was the story.That last 5 minutes was what ruined it.Those last few minutes did not evoke enough climactic power to justify the suspence leading up to it.Too bad,because Nicholson and Lange did great portraying their characters.The portrayal of Greeks here in a semi-ugly light was also condescending to the more intellectual viewer.The overall production was also average as well.Only for big fans of sex/crime dramas and fans of the lead actors.....
