One big, overblown stinker. A pretentious B-Western not worthy of its all-star cast.
| Original Score: 1/5

It doesn't help that Jennifer Jones' accent and the skin tone of her native make-up fluctuate from scene to scene - she is strictly a force of camp that smacks every awful stereotype with a vengeance.

Duel in the Sun benefits from this forbidden passion, as we see Jones and Peck sweating a lot, screaming at each other, hitting each other, and just generally being cruel to one another.

King Vidor's direction keeps the playing in step with production aims. He pitches the action to heights in the top moments and generally holds the overall mood desired.

O romance entre os personagens de Jones e Peck é fascinante, já que ambos possuem caráter dúbio - e o desfecho é fabuloso.

It's big, it's sprawling, it's overheated, it's colorful, but it's not very good.

Duel in the Sun (1946) was branded "Lust in the Dust" at the time of its release, a classic epic western

Many directors worked on this Western and it's impossible to tell whose signature it bears; the final, overheated shootout between the lovers (Gregory Peck and Jennifer Jones), is preposterous but worth the ticket price.

There's no doubt that it goes too far in almost every direction-but that touch of obsession is exactly what saves
