One big, overblown stinker. A pretentious B-Western not worthy of its all-star cast.
| Original Score: 1/5

It doesn't help that Jennifer Jones' accent and the skin tone of her native make-up fluctuate from scene to scene - she is strictly a force of camp that smacks every awful stereotype with a vengeance.

Duel in the Sun benefits from this forbidden passion, as we see Jones and Peck sweating a lot, screaming at each other, hitting each other, and just generally being cruel to one another.

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.
| Original Score: 3/5

Duel in the Sun (1946) was branded "Lust in the Dust" at the time of its release, a classic epic western

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.
