A western classic. Simple story well shot and superbly acted. Early speaking parts by Rock Hudson (Indian chief) and "Anthony" (sic) Curtis a loyal and dutiful cavalry trooper. Dan Durea is a really good bad guy and the hero gets the girl (a young Shelly Winters) in the end. Must see for cowboy movie buffs
Classic western, stewart at his finest as the hard done by humble man who has to fight for what he loves.
Jim Stewart takes some beating as an actor, he always seems so credible in anything he is chosen.
A classic western up there with the best of them. Director Anthony Mann keeps up the pressure in every frame, getting top performances from a splendid cast of characters as they polish off the clever screen play.
A gold pass lesson in film making,eg check out camera placement in the coin shoot out scene and b/g framing of the indian with a lance.
Mann & Jimmy Stewart made five westerns together all of them well worth catching.
Interesting Western with a novel storyline which focuses on a rifle as it passes from person to person. While the movie touches on psychological themes, it isn't self-conscious like many Westerns that came later. Also spot early supporting roles by Rock Hudson (an Injun) and Tony Curtis.
Nostalgic old Western. Shades of Zane Grey.
If you love westerns and the good old yippies, you will love this. In this era movies had a story and I'm not that old
Classic western (even in black @ white)
One of the great westerns of the period. Great script, great actors, great action. This is what we loved to go to see - and still do.
The bonus interview with Stewart is tricky to find. Select on bonus, go to subtitles and enter then return to film. The interview voices over the film with subtitles, and is worth hearing.
A well done western about the famous Winchester rifle. What a collector's item the one in the movie would be!!!
