Underrated western, indeed


I think this movie is underrated as a western. Or maybe it's just under-seen. It's got some really great western visuals, a meaty storyline, a collection of characters whose fates you really start to care about, and some great dialogue here and there. Jack Warden is excellent as a gruff frontier sheriff "just doing his job," as it were. Gregory Peck, playing a Scottish outlaw with a big heart, is really quite good with his Scottish accent (no, it's not perfect, but passable), and has some memorable lines. The supporting cast is good, and ohh.. that nasty little band of outlaw Indians they run into is truly a scary lot.

See it if you get a chance. I'd love for this movie to get more air time.

I also agree that this is underrated and should get more attention.
