A standard B western but...

If I comment this item, it's only because it has not been commented yet and also because it was made by the great Joseph H Lewis, the famous director of GUN CRAZY, SO DARK THE NIGHT, THE BIG COMBO, and also many others great little film noirs or westerns starring Randolph Scott.

I watched this one, I have in my collection since two decades, only because I intended to see how Lewis put his mark in it. And I found some interesting angle cameras shots, during a chariot stampede - with the camera from below - and also some indoor sequences. I don't know the technical names to describe, but we don't see that in other B westerns which, I have already said that in my comments, are nearly all the same. Always topics about big land owners who want to get rid off petty ones or, as in this movie, a freight line that could jeopardize his business.

Always the same. Boring but not charmless...

And I guess that's here the authentic story of America. HEAVEN'S GATE in a lesser scale. And there was thousands of these schemes in westerns.
