One of Hollywood's most famous and acclaimed directors, John Huston guides this western with an unerring hand -- the cast of notable stars is no drawback either. Setting up the story with a series of suspenseful scenes, Huston has a mysterious stranger on horseback come into a small community in the Texas Panhandle and then proceed to cause a mini-war. The time is the mid-19th century and there is already antagonism between the white settlers in the community and the local Kiowa Indian nation.

Director John Huston and cameraman Franz Planer have teamed to provide an intelligent use of the medium for eye-pleasing effects...
This film ... comes draped in the hair shirt of revisionism, but in reality it's an unrepentant throwback to the "good old days" when the only good Indian was a dead Indian.
Considering how Huston and Lancaster have artistic disagreements over filming, it surprisingly still turned out relatively well.
Terrific Western with a strong message
