In David O. Selznick's florid, overheated melodrama Duel in the Sun Jennifer Jones stars as half-Native American Pearl Chavez, who everyone has tagged as a "bad girl" foredoomed to an unhappy end. Her father is Scott Chavez (Herbert Marshall), an ill-fated fellow who kills his wife and her lover (Sidney Blackmer) and gets hung for it. Pearl is taken into the home of the greedy rancher McCanles (Lionel Barrymore) and his kindly wife Laura Belle (Lillian Gish), who'd once been Scott's sweetheart.

Many directors worked on this Western and it's impossible to tell whose signature it bears; the final, overheated shootout between the lovers (Gregory Peck and Jennifer Jones), is preposterous but worth the ticket price.
O romance entre os personagens de Jones e Peck é fascinante, já que ambos possuem caráter dúbio - e o desfecho é fabuloso.
It's big, it's sprawling, it's overheated, it's colorful, but it's not very good.
One big, overblown stinker. A pretentious B-Western not worthy of its all-star cast.
Duel in the Sun (1946) was branded "Lust in the Dust" at the time of its release, a classic epic western
