Highly entertaining western by legendary director Fritz Lang in which a rancher (Arthur Kennedy) loses his fiancée (Gloria Henry) in bank heist to vicious outlaw (Mel Ferrer), along with an accompanying associate. He seeks to hunt these two thieves, only learning the associate has been murdered by his partner, for which his dying words reveal the name of the murderous criminal. The rancher also discovers that a woman (Marlene Dietrich), a saloon singer, is associated closely with the vicious murder. As westerns from the 1950's go, this one is very underrated. It fun, beautifully filmed, and well-acted, especially by Dietrich. It also ends with an exciting and tragic shootout. Definitely worth the watch, even if it really silly. Certainly a difference compared to Lang's next year's release "The Big Heat." In addition, the smart part of William Frawley is also hilarious (he was filming "I Love Lucy" at the time).
