Movie Info

Former hunting guide Ben Cameron (Anthony Quinn), now a rancher, struggles with his new profession and with keeping his feisty younger wife, ex-convict Meg (Debra Paget), distracted. Frustrated by the difficulties of ranch life, Meg quarrels constantly with Ben. When Meg's former criminal partner, Nardo Denning (Ray Milland) -- who turned her in to avoid arrest -- shows up at the ranch, Ben unknowingly allows the pair to go off, sparking a series of threatening events.

  • Dec 19, 2013

    Not a western but a well shot and performed drama set in the West. The story is rather ordinary but benefits from the role reversal of Milland, usually the hero and Quinn, often the heavy but in opposite roles here. Even at the relatively brief running time the script could have been tightened a bit but overall a good film. One caveat-it would take a great deal to make a woman as stunning as Debra Paget was in her prime look bad but the filmmakers almost achieve that feat. Saddled with unflattering makeup and frightening Lucille Ball red hair that never moves no matter what travail she is enduring her beauty is almost completely obscured.
