unheralded wellman western with gregory peck leading a band of outlaws across death valley to hole up in the ghost town of yellow sky. an excellent variation on the tempest/'forbidden planet' theme with anne baxter as a feisty gunslinger and richard widmark a troublemaking 'dude'. the last 5 minutes kinda sells it out but first rate right up until then

Excellent Western where Gregory Peck plays an Outlaw with a gang who is chased across the salt flats into what appears to be a ghost town where near dying of thirst they come across the beautiful Anne Baxter who plays the granddaughter of a miner. The gang is going to steal all the old mans gold until Peck goes soft for the young lady. All in All a great western and great acting by Peck, 4 1/2 Stars

WOW! Why do people not mention this western more often?! THis is an AMAZING hidden gem of a film. Starring Gregory Peck who is amazing as the gruff bank robber who slowly comes around to the better side (in a very real and not cheap old Hollywood way). Anne Baxter really surprises as the tough-as-nails western woman who takes crap from NO ONE. In a genre that is never usually very good to us ladies it is amazing to watch a woman in a western that isn't a whore, who doesn't need rescuing (and actually gets to help the hero out of the jam) and carries a shot gun and has an itchy finger on the trigger. Baxter plays her role with such contempt and strength- I can't give her anymore praise for what is such a different role for this genre and time.

I can hardly believe this came out in '48. It feels more like the revisionist and darker westerns of the 70's but at the same time takes a few healthy shots of noir from the era.

Yellow Sky has the makings of a great western. It deals with greed, jealousy, betrayal, and lust. Gregory Peck, Richard Widmark, and Anne Baxter give incredible performances. The screenplay is well written. William A. Wellman did a great job directing this movie. I enjoyed this film because of the cool characters. Yellow Sky is a must see.

Typical and overused storyline is heightened by excellent performances all around. Rare film that shows Peck and Widmark in bad guy roles, although Peck would switch over. Brilliantly filmed and acted make up for a cliched Western script.
