Adult western that deals with the threat of mob rule and a crisis of conscience for several of its characters. Henry Fonda is the nominal lead and he is fine as usual but the best performance comes from the great Richard Widmark who is tormented by a very basic struggle.

A small town terrorized by outlaws hires gunman Henry Fonda as unofficial lawman but when the bodies start to mount up, local cowpoke Richard Widmark steps in as sheriff causing tensions for all concerned. Essentially a variation on the OK Corral story, Fonda's character is probably far closer to a true portrait of Wyatt Earp than his more romanticized counterparts. Although on the surface a black hat vs white hat generic western, it's more of a series of varying shades of grey hats in the ring, as each man has a shady past and ulterior agenda. Fonda is a man of violence that tries to play by the rules but has no illusions as to what his job entails; Doc Holliday style sidekick Anthony Quinn plays both sides of the fence off against each other but has very sketchy motives; Richard Widmark is initially torn between his inherent sense of right and wrong and loyalty to his friends but comes to realise the time for vigilante justice is over. The larger theme for the story is the passing of the old west from lawlessness to order and despite the rather formulaic approach, some well written characters and quality leading men make for a cut above the usual horse opera.

This is a five star Western but lost a half star because it would have been very interesting to see Widmark in the Fonda role.

Psychological Western dealing with an intense plutonic relationship between two men and in the case of the Quinn character strangely possessive. The script is excellent and the acting of both Quinn and Fonda good and realistic. This is a must for those who like western which are a mixture of the classical and the off-beat.

Great, great, good-old fashioned western, with a meaningful story and very many feel.

Very underrated.

This great film never got the recognition it deserved. Richard Widmark is Johnny Gannon a man who changes and also changes sides. He was a member of McQuown's gang and in spite of his brother remaining in the gang he becomes the marshal. He is much like Marlon Brando in "On The Waterfront" which was made by Elia Kazan who had the same political problems. Henry Fonda is hired to clean the town and he comes along with his partner Anthony Quinn. Fonda falls in love with Dolores Michaels and wants to change but Quinn has a terrible fear of changing and being alone. There is nothing homosexual in their friendship-partnership, only too much mutual dependency.
