    Gregory Peck solidly embodies a tortured soul relentlessly chasing after the four who raped and killed his beloved wife, so it's a revenge flick, although it notably takes it's good and sweet time revealing it's hand so's it can build tension with the character. The nature of the twist at the ending has lost it's moral punch in the succeeding generations since the film was made, but nonetheless this is still a serviceable effort

    Gregory Peck plays Jim Douglass, a relentless man bent on avenging the rape and death of his wife by four outlaws six months earlier. He follows them to a small town where they were going to be hung for their evil deeds. Whilst there me meets a former gal pal, Joan Collins (Josefa), who is still madly in love with him and has never married. Naturally, things go wrong: the bad guys escape, taking a young female hostage (Kathleen Gallant) with them and Douglass sets off, with the posse, to recapture them although Douglass is set upon dispensing summary justice if possible. And that he does to three of the bravados, but when catching up with the fourth, the Indian Lujan (Henry Silva), Douglass discovers that his vengeful mission has been seriously flawed from the get-go. Lee van Cleef portrays one of the bad guys in his usual eye piercing style. Peck does an admirable job of portraying a steely-eyed, single-minded 'hunter' hell-bent on vengeance against all cost and Joan Collins wasn't half bad as the rekindled love interest. The leering Stephen Boyd is also memorable as Bill, the psychotic outlaw ready for rape and murder any time it suits him.

    The Bravados started out really good.I expected to add it to my Best Western list & go out & look for it on DVD but towards the end it just lost it's steam & became an ordinary Western.I hate it when that happens!

    Solid western with Peck as conflicted man who almost becomes amoral killer. Joan looks lovely and for the most part is good in a sketchy role.
