Milland's caustic performance, one of his better ones, keeps things at a boil until the bitter end.

Not-so-great thriller - but with a creative use of color and staging from director Dwan.

Not a western but a well shot and performed drama set in the West. The story is rather ordinary but benefits from the role reversal of Milland, usually the hero and Quinn, often the heavy but in opposite roles here. Even at the relatively brief running time the script could have been tightened a bit but overall a good film. One caveat-it would take a great deal to make a woman as stunning as Debra Paget was in her prime look bad but the filmmakers almost achieve that feat. Saddled with unflattering makeup and frightening Lucille Ball red hair that never moves no matter what travail she is enduring her beauty is almost completely obscured.
