Spencer Tracy in particular gives a ferocious late career performance.
Although its theme is not original... Edward Dmytryk... has made his copy-book characters as fresh as his panoramas.
This sturdy Western is basically William Shakespeare by way of Joseph L. Mankiewicz.
There may be debates about Yordan's Oscar-winning script, but Dmytryk's direction of this compelling Western is taut and the acting, especially by Tracy and Katy Jurado (Oscar-nominated), is superb.
It lifts its plot line from Joseph Mankiewicz's powerful 1949 House of Strangers.
One of the earliest elegies to the dying of the West.
O roteiro (vencedor do Oscar, acredite ou não) é cheio de clichês; e o final, esquemático. Katy Jurado foi indicada ao prêmio aparentemente por dizer 'My hOsband' o tempo todo.
While Fox's May 18, 2005 DVD release of their 1954 film "Broken Lance" includes both Widescreen and Full Screen Versions (or Pan & Scan), it is the CinemaScope (2.55:1) version that brings the power and grandeur of this exceptional dramatic Western to life -- that along with the excellent 4-track Stereophonic sound track that was part of its original release. It has been 50 years since we have had the opportunity to see the film in the manner that it was first released theatrically -- and in this form it ranks as one of the finest Westerns of all-time. Rchard Murphy's Oscar winning screenplay provides some excellent dialog and story structure not usually found in the average outdoor film. The cast, all the way from Spencer Tracy to smaller roles like that of E.G. Marshall, are all we developed. Now if Fox would only give the same great release treatment to their 1955 "A Man Called Peter" (only available in Pan & Scan VHS)! It would be wonderful to see this film in CinemaScope with Stereophonic sound once again! 5 Stars 7-9-13
