East Bay Express

His every move meets resistance. In this grim cavalcade of paranoia on the hoof, the verbal jabs never let up.

This 1953 film has Janet Leigh in jeans, beautiful location shooting (and Technicolor cinematography) in the Rockies, and some of the most intense psychological warfare to be found in [director Anthony] Mann's angular and anguished oeuvre.

Mann never failed to deliver an astonishing ending to his Westerns, but this is one of his best.

One of Stewart's best tortured performances, showing his dark side. A must-see for Stewart buffs.

Wonderfully intense psychological Western built around a simple story of greed and the chance to start life over again after failure.

...an engrossing little film that doesn't flinch from showing us the worst in people, including the hero.

This rock-solid Western is brisk, terse, and full of excellent performances..and for once, a Jimmy Stewart film doesn't find its leading man stealing the show!

In this taut revenge Western, from Oscar-nominated script by Sam Rolfe and Harold Jack Bloom, Jimmy Stewart gives one of his best performances, revealing a darker facet to his screen persona that only a superb director like Anthony Mann could bring out
