Goofs

When Dan Roden escapes into the barn at the end of the film, he is holding only the gun he seizes (having just been brought from jail, he had no weapon). After emptying the gun, he suddenly is seen reloading the weapon and magically now has a gun belt on and a furious gunfight ensues. Where did the gun belt and ammunition come from? See more »

Douglas' first western and Mayo acts great and looks great.
27 November 2005 | by tmwestSee all my reviews

This was Kirk Douglas' first western and he did so well, that he could not stop making them after. Virginia Mayo, who used to be just another pretty woman, here, as in Colorado Territory, has a chance to show her talent and does very well, she still looks modern, when you see the film today. The story is about Kirk saving Walter Brennan from a lynch mob, and trying to get him to the nearest town without being caught by the mob. He chooses to go through the desert and falls in love with Brennan's daughter(Mayo). Raoul Walsh feels at home directing this film, he is as good as always. What I did not like about the film is the song that Douglas does not want to hear, and Brennan keeps singing, it's too sentimental and just one step from being ridiculous. Apart from that, this is an above average western
