Without the presence of Martin and Mitchum this would be strictly a B-Movie, but with them it becomes something quite enjoyable.

More of a murder mystery set during Western times then a Western but thats what makes it so good so if you like Western or Mystery then you got the best of both here.Look out for the murder by barbed wire.It was just brutal & the 1st time I've seen something like it

Fine revenge Western with Dean Martin and Robert Mitchum both at the top of their cool. There are few surprises in the mystery, but many great character moments peppered throughout and some startlingly grisly violence for this genre at the time.
