Storyline

Two Virginians are heading for a new life in Texas when they witness a stagecoach being held up. They decide to rob the robbers and make off with the loot. To escape a posse, they split up and don't see each other again for a long time. When they do meet up again, they find themselves on different sides of the law. This leads to the increasing estrangement of the two men, who once thought of themselves as brothers. Written by Alfred Jingle

Trivia

As was often the case during his career, Holden shaved his chest before appearing, shirtless, in this movie's prizefighting sequence. However, because of production delays, by the time his bare chested scenes were actually filmed, quite an amount of grow back was already visible. See more »

Goofs

Claire Trevor's hairstyle is strictly 1941, even though the story is taking place in 1866. See more »

Very Good Western
6 January 2013 | by lee1888See all my reviews

This is a very good western with two great up and coming actors at that time. Glen Ford and William Holden really shined in this movie and it paid off good for both of them.

This was Fords 9th film and Holden's 6th, but you could never tell it by their acting. These two men played well off each other. It didn't hurt that they had Claire Trevor as their love interest either. The cast is rounded out with the great actor Edgar Buchanan playing the bad guy, I know it's hard to hate a man like Buchanan.

This is NOT a B cowboy movie, far from it. The scrip and acting is very good, and the movie has a good plot as it moves alone and never leaves you bogged down. Ford and Holden play well off each other, so well in fact it wasn't long before Hollywood teamed them up again in another western "The Man From Colorado".

So if your looking for a very good western with a great cast that has plenty of action along with some humor and love, you can't go wrong with this movie.
