Above-average Western with some complex plot development; as so often, Kirk Douglas carries the show.
very weak, boring, useless, lame movie.
A typical no nonsense kinda western. Good performances
A rowdy, wonderful Western which sadly has gotten very little attention from both audiences and its own studio. This movie is not available on DVD in the U.S., an error which Universal seriously needs to rectify. Kirk Douglas gives one of his best performances as the title character, an easy-going drifter who befriends a young, impressionable runaway (William Campbell). The two of them wander into a town where they are hired to work on a ranch owned by a manipulative woman (Jeanne Crain). When the owner extends her herd further across the land, however, Kirk finds himself reluctantly embroiled in a range war. Douglas shines in this lively Western, as does Crain as the carnivorous rancher. Campbell is a bit annoying, though; he tries a bit too hard but grows more into the role as the movie progresses. Although it follows many Western conventions, 'Man Without a Star' is hardly routine; it's energetic, exciting, memorable, and often funny. Frankie Laine sings the title tune; Kirk sings and plays the banjo in the film, just like he did in '20,000 Leagues Under the Sea' the year before. Catch this under-appreciated gem when and if you can.

Without Kirk Douglas this western would have little fizz to it as the story is ordinary stuff. He gives a nice performance although nothing award worthy.
Kirk Douglas done a amazing job in this movie. I love this movie. This movie one of my best westerns.
For some reason, I've seen this Kirk Douglas movie more than any of his others. It's a very good one and Kirk is as great as he's ever been.
Characteristically powerful performance from Kirk, ably assisted by strong back-up cast. The story does occasionally lose momentum but the moving is satifying. The resolution is a bit quick by comparision with today's films. A kind of Western Casablanca, set amidst the irrisistable forces of modernisation. This movie shows the power of fable and myth to reflect back timeless concerns about growing up, progress and tkaing a side
Good western, but nothing much out of the ordinary for the time period. Professionally made, Kirk Douglas is good as always, not much attention to period detail. Entertaining but not a particularly memorable film.
