      Grant Watson Fiction Machine The first act in particular strains to summon much energy beyond Cassavettes, and the second and third acts feel a bit woolly – as if nobody quite knows what the film should ultimately be about Rated: 5/10 Feb 17, 2023 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews This above average psychological Western is unfortunately static and humorless. Rated: B- Jun 27, 2009 Full Review Read all reviews

Robert Tayor gives a Oscsr worthy performance. Beautiful scenery and great musical score. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/01/23 Full Review s r A let down despite some good potential and great cinematography. Rated 2 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Shot in cinemascope. Beautiful. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/23/23 Full Review Audience Member Rod Serling scripted western is a bit different than your typical western, but it's not as radically out there as you might expect. Robert Taylor is a gunfighter trying to go straight, but is concerned with his brother, John Cassavetes, and his enjoyment of killing. You can probably imagine where the conclusion of this film is heading, which is kind of surprising for a Serling story. Still, it's got a good cast that also includes Julie London (who also sings the theme song), Donald Crisp, Charles McGraw and Royal Dano, and is a solid western for fans of the genre.
