    This is my favorite western family saga, and that includes "Giant." Lots of fine actors giving great performances, playing morally compromised individuals with redeeming qualities; in other words, people like you and me. The four best are Barbara Stanwyck as a daddy's girl with more than a hint of incestuousness in her fiery temperament to go along with a moral consciousness, Walter Houston in his last role as a bigoted, cruel, yet joie de vivre cattle rancher, Wendell Corey (an underrated actor whom I've always liked) as a double dealing yet ultimately honorable banker/gambler, and the great Shakespearean actress, Judith Anderson, playing an aging "adventuress" who has a vulnerable side. For these four performances alone this movie is worth the price of admission. Also worthwhile is dark, brooding, moody direction by Anthony Mann who, as one of the reviewers below alluded to, brought an interesting noir sensibility to westerns, equally haunting, uneasy, yet beautiful music from Franz Waxman, and harshly lovely cinematography by Victor Milner. About the only thing that bothered me was Charles Schnee's screenplay. A bit too Greek Tragedy Goes Cowboy for my taste, plus he made Gilbert Roland's Mexican peasant character too saintly, thus pulling against the general believability of the rest of the cast. So, let's give it an A minus 'stead of an A for that.

  • please show this one again

    it hasn't been on in years, that i have seen. i would love to see it again, but hate to pay that price. i wrote a review of 'desert fury' and wrote on it that it was available from criterion collection, but i was wrong - that was this title, not 'desert fury'. i love the movie, but $40.00 is too steep. i do wish i could see it again on TCM though. it is one of the best westerns - one that has lots of action for the husbands and lots of plot and personal relationships for their wives! and you can never beat wendell corey and barbara stanwyck.

  • great noir western
