The staging of physical conflict is deadly, equalling anything yet seen on the screen.

Immaculately shot by Russell Harlan, perfectly performed by a host of Hawks regulars, and shot through with dark comedy, it's probably the finest Western of the '40s.

Even despite a big let-down, which fortunately comes near the end, it stands sixteen hands above the level of routine horse opera these days. So strap on your trusty six-shooters and race to the wind-swept Capitol, you lovers of good old Western fiction.

It's a sign of the movie's complexity that John Wayne, often typecast, is given a tortured, conflicted character to play.
