An atmospheric, psychological western from much the same team responsible for GUNFIGHT AT THE O.K. CORRAL: director Sturges, actors Douglas and Holliman and cinematographer Lang, as well as the editor, art directors and composer. Douglas is determined to bring to justice the man who
killed and raped his wife but is shocked to learn the culprit is Holliman, the son of Quinn, Douglas' best friend and a powerful cattle baron. His plan is to get the boy onto the last train out of Gun Hill before Quinn's henchmen can stop him. Extremely well done on all fronts.
