Quotes

Chad Deasey: Let me lay it out for you. You killed my brother... before I'm done with you, you'll wish it were the other way around. I'm going to make you a mark for every trigger-happy punk. I'm going to push you off the land, out of town, into the saddle, onto the trail with nothing but your roll and gun. There won't be a town within a thousand miles where the sheriff won't be waiting for you; won't be a town within a thousand miles where you'll be able to rest your head.

outstanding, forgotten western.
4 November 2007 | by tmwestSee all my reviews

An excellent director (Gerd Oswald, who also directed A Kiss Before Dying), excellent cinematographer Joseph LaShelle (River of No Return and Marty among many others) and great performances by John Derek and Nick Adams make this an outstanding western. Derek is Brock Mitchell a rancher who was just released from jail, where he was because he killed a man in self defense. Nick Adams is Tracy, his brother. The fact is that the man Brock killed is the brother of an important man in town who will do everything he can against him. One way out would be for Brock to go away to a distant place, but there are certain reasons for him to stay, like paying the loan Tracy took to develop the ranch, which will not be difficult considering the railroad is going to pass there. It will be just a question of getting a letter from the railroad confirming the deal, but time is running against them. Another reason is that Brock loves Ginny, whose father is against him because he thinks he killed because of jealousy. One more reason is that Brock needs the sense of belonging, that he feels in his home town. There is a heavy ambiance, increased by the black and white cinematography.
