The movie becomes a game between Mann and the viewer - how long can the filmmaker keep the supposed hero from finally doing the right thing?
The final shootout probably inspired Robert Altman's McCabe and Mrs. Miller, taking place in the dark, on the ground and crawling in the mud -- purposely clumsy and unheroic.
It stars Mann's favorite Western leading man James Stewart in an anti-hero role.
One of the very good Stewart-Mann collaborative westerns.
A terrific western with Stewart as an anti-hero.
Almost a mirror film to Winchester '73, with the same writer, director, star, and style, this one involves the same old same old about the smoothy crook dishonestly making a land grab off of the honest hardworking pioneer types. Stewart decides to even the deal out in this predictable, but fun, fable.
Starts promisingly but peters out into routineness by it's end.
Jimmy Stewart is a likable 'antihero' in this oddly written but beautifully shot western adventure. A must-see for fans of Walter Brennan (like me).
*Interesting bit of trivia: "One of James Stewart's favorite stories of his film career concerned his horse, Pie, a sorrel stallion whom Stewart called, "One of the best co-stars I ever had." Pie appeared as Stewart's horse in 17 Westerns, and the actor developed a strong personal bond with the horse. Pie was very intelligent, Stewart recalled, and would often "act for the cameras when they were rolling. He was a ham of a horse." When shooting the climax of "The Far Country," the script called for Stewart's horse to walk down a dark street alone, with no rider in the saddle, to fool the bad guys who were waiting to ambush Stewart. Assistant Director John Sherwood asked Stewart if Pie would be able to do the scene. Stewart replied, "I'll talk to him." Just before the cameras rolled, Stewart took Pie aside and whispered to the horse for several minutes, giving him instructions for the scene. When Stewart let the horse go, Pie walked perfectly down the middle of the street, doing the scene in one take. When Pie died in 1970, Stewart arranged to have the horse buried at his California ranch." -IMDb.com
Better than decent but less than wonderful western refreshingly set in the Yukon during the Klondike Gold Rush. Starts out great with Jimmy being a real dick but ends up a little moralizing and mawkish. The wholly amoral American "marshall" is great.
