"This was the night when the naked fury of the McLaines flamed out with consuming vengeance across a terrorized land!"


  • Director: James Neilson
  • Genre: Western, Action & Adventure, Classics,
  • Studio: Universal International Pictures
  • Subtitled | Widescreen | Duration: 110 Mins

James Stewart, director Anthony Mann and writer Borden Chase already had a whole string of hit westerns under their belt when they started work on this below-par effort. Mann quit after a few days, sensing that the script wasn't quite ready, and made way for TV director James Neilson. "James Stewart wanted him, but he wasn't strong enough," said Chase. "It was very difficult." Stewart plays a former railroad man who is pitted against his own brother, a train robber played by Audie Murphy, when he's hired to deliver a payroll. Though beautifully shot, it rather dawdles along, indulging Stewart's singing and accordion-playing skills before climaxing with a decently staged shoot-out.
