      Steve D Great cast and a script not worthy of them. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/24/24 Full Review Audience Member Solid little western about bank robber Glenn Ford trying to go straight, but his past catching up with him. Randolph Scott plays a town sheriff who Ford eventually help to clean up the town as an act of redemption. Claire Trevor plays the love interest. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Columbia's first Technicolor western is a beaut--The color is impressive , good story, good action!! Rated 3 out of 5 stars 02/22/23 Full Review Audience Member Very formula Western benefits a little from a good cast. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/11/23 Full Review Audience Member If it's got Scott and Ford ... it can't be bad. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member Early technicolor Western. Fine cast but not especially noteworthy otherwise. Rated 3 out of 5 stars 01/26/23 Full Review Read all reviews
