Randolph Scott is a bounty hunter bent on revenge in the sixth of his seven highly praised collaborations with Budd Boetticher. Andrew Sarris described these austere, low-budget Westerns as “constructed partly as allegorical odysseys and partly as floating crap games where every character took turns at bluffing about his hand until the final showdown.” Boetticher and cinematographer Charles Lawton use the widescreen format to frame a barren landscape that emphasizes Scott’s isolation.
