      Bosley Crowther New York Times It has no psychological pattern, no dramatic point. There's a lot of pretty snow scenery in it and a lot of talk about deep emotional things. But it gets lost in following some sort of pretense. Rated: 2/5 Sep 30, 2006 Full Review Richard von Busack MetroActive Track of the Cat (1954) a late period William Wellman picture in fine CinemaScope, exemplifies the 1950s Westerns that were trying to muscle in on Eugene O'Neill's turf. Aug 25, 2017 Full Review Dennis Schwartz Dennis Schwartz Movie Reviews It's one of those overlooked great films that somehow slips under the radar, in this case probably because it's unique as a Western. Rated: A Dec 23, 2005 Full Review Read all reviews

      Audience Member The film is not about the Cat but about the foul humanity. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 01/16/23 Full Review Audience Member A complete wastes of time. Absolutely awful. Can you believe Alfalfa is in it hidden in a hugely laughable caricatured Indian? Rated 1 out of 5 stars 02/26/23 Full Review cole m XFinity has free movies and so I thought I would partake in this Robert Mitchum movie. While it starts fine in the beginning, as it progresses it gets caught in family contention and drama and the panther (which everyone calls a 'painter' humorously) never shows up in the film. It's an utter disappointment. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 03/31/23 Full Review Audience Member Found this William Wellman film somewhat disjointed with almost two separate tales being told. Visually interesting but overall not a success. Rated 2.5 out of 5 stars 01/29/23 Full Review Audience Member often overlooked western actioner Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/21/23 Full Review Audience Member Great western movie classic. Heart throb, Tab Hunter plays Harold, low esteem, youngest son of the Bridges family. Harold's love for Gwen (Diana Lynn) meets disapproval of matriarch, Ma Bridges (Beulah Bondi). His older brother, Curt, wants Gwen for himself, and sets out to show Gwen what she's missing. Arthur (William Hopper) eldest son, tries to keep the peace. A panther has other ideas;moreover, so does Gwen. Rated 4 out of 5 stars 01/31/23 Full Review Read all reviews
