Classic western starring Robert Ryan and Burl Ives. On the run after carrying out a brutal robbery, a group of renegade soldiers led by the mortally wounded Jack Bruhn (Ives) rides into an isolated town in the far West and begins terrorising the locals. In order to spare the townspeople more abuse, rancher Blaise Starrett (Ryan) agrees to lead Bruhn and his gang to safety.

Not one of the most well known,but one of the best westerns of the fifties.Set in a bleak,wintery landscape,it has stand out performances by the great Robert Ryan and Burl Ives and an excellent score by Alexander Courage.Highly recommmended.

Western Classics provide reasonably priced no frills DVDs. There are no extras, all you get is the film, and this is fine. Thankfully they have made many fine westerns available on Region 2 that would otherwise be unavailable. I think of fine films like "Man of the West" and "Warlock". They have excelled themselves once more in saving this wonderful B Western. The end of the fifties was when the B Western reached the zenith of its artistic heights. Budd Boetticher was performing small miracles on a limited budget. But hot on his heels was Andre De Toth the one eyed Hungarian émigré director. This fine director is perhaps best known for his horror film "House of Wax", but he also made many good Westerns like "The Indian Fighter" with Kirk Douglas. He also made a number with Randolph Scott including "Man in the Saddle". His work has come to be more appreciated in recent times and "Day of the Outlaw" is I feel his crowning achievement.

Robert Ryan that wonderful actor who illuminated so many films with his presence plays Blaise Starrett a ruthless, conflicted, lone cattle rancher in the small outpost of Bitters. An appropriate name as you will see! An ongoing feud with a local farmer is about to boil over. Starrett has an uneasy relationship with the residents of Bitters summed up in the following words he speaks to one of them. "You got a big mouth, farmer. You got big eyes too. You come here a year ago in your broken down wagon looking for a choice spot to settle and you think you found it. But you never stopped to think what made it such a good place......." This of course is the eternal struggle between those who pioneer new lands and those who follow in their wake.

Format: DVD
Cowboys and ranchers must stick together when a gang of outlaws ride into town intent on causing trouble and abusing the town. Even tho their leader, ex army Captain, Jack Bruhn has them under some sort of control, salvation may have to come from the moody Blaise Starrett, who has his own secret agenda to deal with.

Day Of The Outlaw {poor title not befitting the quality of the film} is directed by André De Toth {Ramrod, Crime Wave & House of Wax} and stars Robert Ryan, Burl Ives & Tina Louise. Adapted from the novel written by Lee E. Wells, it's a film that is crying out to be seen by more people, especially those with an aversion to Westerns. For although grounded in Western tradition, it comes across more as a moody Noir piece, the atmosphere throughout hangs heavy like a weighted burden, with this tiny tin pot town in the snowy swept mountains photographed starkly by Russell Harlan. This is some out of the way place that nobody but its small inhabitants care about, and even those that do are probably doing so more out of ill judged loyalty to having not tasted something else before.

Robert Ryan was a terrific actor, often only mentioned when talk turns to famous pictures like The Wild Bunch & The Dirty Dozen, but it's with performances like here, or The Set-Up & Crossfire, that he really puts a depth and critical layers to his talent. Burl Ives is also great, his weary and scarred Bruhn is almost in empathy with Starrett and the townsfolk, so much so, we are never quite sure just how this picture will end. Tina Louise rounds out the leads, and apart from being an incredibly sexy woman, she does some great facial acting here, one sequence as the outlaws demand dances with the ladies is laden with a vile undercurrent, with Louise perfectly portraying the threat with acting gravitas. With astute directing and acting to match the almost sombre soaked story, Day Of The Outlaw comes highly recommended to fans of atmospheric enveloped cinema. 9/10

Format: DVD
"Now listen," says Jack Bruhn (Burl Ives), renegade former captain in the U. S. Army, to the frightened men and women of Bitters, population about 20, four of them women. It's deep winter and Bruhn and his men have just barged into the saloon as rancher Blaise Starrett (Robert Ryan) was about to gun down farmer Hal Crane. "Do as you're told and you can go about your business just like we're not here, almost. But we are here so it's best you know with what you're dealing. Pace here gets pleasure out of hurting people. Tex, rile him and you're going to hear some screaming in this town today. Denver, half Cheyenne. Him hate white man. He doesn't feel half so badly about white women. Vause, bones covered with dirty skin but even half drunk he's the fastest draw in Wyoming Territory. And Shorty. We soldiered together. The young fella, well, he's a fresh recruit but he's learning fast."

For the rest of the day and through the night Bruhn by force of will is going to control his motley, dangerous gang. He'll deny them liquor, deny them the town's women, and undergo an excruciating operation by the town vet to extract a bullet from a lung. They're on the run with $40,000 in gold in their saddlebags. The U.S. Cavalry is on their trail. Bruhn is a complex man with an odd sense of honor. He was responsible for a massacre by soldiers under his command. His justice is ruthless. His authority is complete...as long as he lives. Right now he is the only one capable of keeping his gang of killers from tearing up Bitters by its roots.

And that includes Blaise Starrett, an angry rancher...
