Audience Reviews for Firecreek

Gritty western with a melancholy tone. Stewart and Fonda do good work as adversaries although Henry is a conflicted villain. He has some good scenes with Inger Stevens that humanize his character. Inger imparts a real sense of muted sorrow to her part but also a core of strength, a very subtle actress.
