    Appropriate title since this film is "saddled" with a "windy," talky, preachy screenplay by the pre Twilight Zone Rod Serling. Actually the post "zone" Serling was pretty soapboxy too, come to think of it; it's just that the classic TV series, being only thirty minutes long (the early and better ones, at least), was tighter paced and didn't give Serling a chance to sermonize as much or at such great length. Here we're not so lucky. I felt if I had to listen to one more Robert Taylor or Donald Crisp disquisition on the evils of gunfighting I was going to draw on my TV screen. Combine that with a dull Julie London performance with less sexual chemistry between her and Cassavetes (or Taylor) than that between Donald and Melania and Cassavetes snarling and yelling and laughing maniacally and generally acting as if he'd rather be on location in The Village than in Wyoming and you begin to see how this film scales the peaks of Mt. Ordinary. Solid C. P.S. The best character (and performance) in this film is Charles McGraw's grizzled, weary, none too nice gunfighter. Killing him off 30 min. in is the kind of poor story decision that Serling would soon learn to avoid on the small screen.

  • Very good film
