  • Mr. Cagney's performance, as usual, is cocky and colorful without a great deal of substance or strenuous sincerity.

  • Ray's sensitive handling of actors and his exact compositional sense are as much in evidence as ever.

  • Cagney tried to revive gis career with this offbeat, moody but not great Western directed by Nicholas Ray, who imabues the film with signature themes and visuals.

  • Cagney was about 56 when he made this interesting western. He was a bit long in the tooth, but his vitality showed through his wrinkles and the result was a pleasing picture.

    Oct 23, 2007 | Rating: 3.5/4 | Full Review…
  • An intriguing low-key western.

    Dec 6, 2005 | Full Review…
  • Ray endows it with his usual themes of generational conflict and societal injustice, and does a powerful job getting these themes across.
