    Cagney makes it totally believable that he's a ranch owner in the middle of nowhere, Colorado, dealing with horse thieves the old fashioned way. His big problem though is that the only woman in over 200 miles is undecided as to her affections. Loads of typical Western shots, horseflesh, and cowpokes spitting gives the work authenticity, and Irene Papas makes her indecision gambit viable. The story is told through the eyes of one Don Dubbins as The Kid, and he unfortunately lacks the charisma to hold interest.

    Cagney elevates this western as a hard driving ranch master who metes out prarie justice. Papas is strong as the love interest of two men but Dubbins is a non-entity as the second lead and hurts the film.
