Audience Member A great cast adds class to this adaptation of an A.B. Guthrie novel. Rated 3.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member Average western with advantage of good cast. Don Murray is okay in the lead, he never really had that elusive something to be a great movie star but is a fine actor. The supporting cast is full of familiar faces that all provide excellent work, the real standout is Lee Remick who offers up a delicately shaded perfomance of a girl whose life has been full of bad breaks and hard luck. It a shame her part is relatively small since she's the most compelling character and actor in the film. The color and cinematography is also noteworthy. Not a bad movie just not great. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 02/27/23 Full Review Audience Member not much at all going on here....total stock western fare...morality tale, cattle, etc, etc. I only watched this to complete my Richard Fleischer catalog....oh, Lee Remick is also good in it... Rated 2 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Read all reviews
