1955. USA. Dir: Anthony Mann. With James Stewart. 103 min. 35mm print.
Stewart comes to the West with a mission and a mule train – and he leaves with a bullet in the hand. Shakespearean tragedy and psychological subtlety typify this crowning CinemaScope Western from Mann (Winchester ’73), whose eye for clarity, depth, and the grandeur of the landscape is without limit.
