  • A Good Western...Period!

    When I first saw this in the local movie house I thought it was okay, but the more I watch it the more I like it. Anthony Mann brings a kind of subdued but heightening drama to this less known Western, and no-one can be more subdued than Henry Fonda. This film was the pre-cursor for Fonda who went on to star in a very good TV Western called The Deputy. Fonda's quietness is offset by the bravado and nieveness of Anthony Perkins, but one learns to like Perkins in his role of new sherrif as he tries to bring stability to the town. At one point Mann makes us really dislike Perkins when he thinks he can talk the killers of the doc to surrender. Mann is great at playing on our emotions as he shows the wonderful relationship between the doctor played by the always wonderful John Mcyntire and his horse Annie. Seeing Annie bringing home a dead friend is heartwrenching. Neville Brand is wonderful as the town bully, and only Leo Gordon could do it better. This is a fine film that is never outdated...

    Solid, but unsurprising western from veteran genre director Mann with always engaging Henry Fonda and good enough Anthony Perkins in the leads. It lacks the dramatic undercurrent of the Mann-Stewart collaborations, and the story is totally predictable, unless this is the first Western you ever saw. Still, enough quality from director and performers to make this worth spending time with.

  • Great Western

    Good western, Henry Fonda Teaches Anthony Perkins about being a sheriff. As much about bigotry as anything else. Perkins very good as young interim sheriff who wants the job permenately.
