After over fifty years this little western still holds up very well. Director Elmo Williams put together a great cast with Bridges, Cobb, Windsor and the wonderfully hateful Luther Adler, in a tale of gold, Indians, and rugged action. The final scene, with Bridges fending off Indians as he claws his way through the rocks is classic. If you liked "High Noon" "Treasure of Sierra Madre" or "Stagecoach" this one is for you!

We have a monthly event in our town called "The Art Walk", and Elmo Williams is a frequent contributor to the entertainment. On November 10, 2007, Elmo told the story of the difficulties encountered in making this film with a budget of only $104,000 and about some of the personalities involved with the production. You may or may not like this film, but it will be worthwhile seeing what a great filmmaker can do with a fraction of the money available to some of his contemporaries.

Print quality on this VCI release is very good. This is Academy Award winning film editor Elmo Williams' directorial debut and it's entertaining enough. It was written as they went along which isn't always the kiss of death but it usually is. Fortunately the actors are top-notch and make the thing worth watching.

I'm a western fan and also a fan of Lloyd Bridges and I was curious about any early film he starred in. Also in the cast is Lee J. Cobb and I enjoy his movies. I found this film to be an entertaining B western.
