Found grievously injured by rancher Shep Horgan (Ernest Borgnine, The Wild Bunch), Jubal Troop (Glenn Ford, 3:10 to Yuma, 1957), a man who's life has been dogged by bad luck, is offered a job as a cowhand. Soon his obvious abilities earn him Shep's trust and a promotion. This riles former top hand, Pinky (Rod Steiger, On The Waterfront) who's been supplanted by the new man. Things are further complicated when Shep's wife Mae, unhappy in her marriage, turns her attention away from Pinky and onto Jubal, whose romantic interests lie elsewhere. Into this explosive situation, Reb (Charles Bronson, Once Upon A Time In The West) a traveling stranger, offers his help, but it's up to Jubal to change finally change the luck in his life from bad to good.

Jubal is directed by Delmer Daves and adapted by Daves and Russell S. Hughes from the Paul Wellman novel, Jubal Troop. It stars Glenn Ford, Ernest Borgnine, Rod Steiger, Charles Bronson, Valerie French & Felicia Farr. David Raksin scores the music and Charles Lawton Jr. is the cinematographer. Out of Columbia Pictures it`s a CinemaScope/Technicolor production, and location for the shoot is Jackson Hole, The Grand Tetons, Wyoming, USA.

Jubal Troop (Ford) is found exhausted out on the range and given shelter at a nearby ranch owned by Shep Horgan (Borgnine). Shep oversees Jubal`s recovery and offers him a job as part of his ranch team. This is met with objection by Shep`s mean foreman, Pinky (Steiger), but Shep is undeterred and Jubal goes on to prove his worth in the position. Shep and Jubal get on great, but trouble is brewing because Shep`s pretty Canadian wife, Mae (French), has taken quite a shine to Jubal. This further enrages Pinky, and a hornets nest is stirred, spelling trouble for practically everyone.

Delmer Daves` (Dark Passage/Broken Arrow) Jubal is often likened to William Shakespeare`s Othello, that`s something that, whilst being flattering, is best ignored. For Jubal, and its makers, deserve credit in their own right for producing such a tight, tense, adult Western. It`s a film that`s driven by characters who are caught in a web of jealousy and suppressed emotions, with the underrated Daves bringing some psychological dimensions into the narrative. He`s also a director who knows that such a story benefits greatly by not including action and violence just for the sake of upping the tempo.

7 of 8 people found the following review helpful By Bob Salter TOP 500 REVIEWERVINE VOICE on 25 July 2009
Format: DVD
This powerful western drama directed by the admirable Delmer Daves, is a none too thinly disguised reworking of Shakespeare's "Othello". Ernest Borgnine still in the afterglow of his oscar for "Marty"(55) plays the role of Othello. Rod Steiger is a brooding Iago. "He don't like nobody, not even himself". Valerie French plays the temptress Desdemona and Glenn Ford plays our hero Cassio.

In the film Shep Horgan played by Borgnine finds a badly injured Jubal Troop played by Ford, and takes him back to his ranch. Horgan takes a shine to him and he is later offered a job at the ranch which he takes. Matters become complicated when Horgan's unfaithful wife played by French, also takes a more carnal shine to Troop, who then replaces Pinky another ranch cowhand, played by Steiger, as the object of her dangerous affections. All these shennanigans turn Pinky apoplectic with rage. Never a happy bunny at the best of times he begins to go very bad indeed. So bad that he does not require a black hat to identify him. Jealousy and anger fan the flames of tragedy. A wicked web of lies and intrigue is spun to trap the unsuspecting Jubal, and cause a shattering rift between himself and his great friend Horgan. We head inexorably toward death and redemption for some.

The film boasts an unusually strong cast who all give strong performances. Borgnine maintains his powerful good form and Ford is reliable as ever. Steiger perhaps steals the show as the villainous Pinky, a juicy role very similar to his Jud Fry in "Oklahoma"(55). Charles Bronson offers strong support as a stalwart friend of Ford, and Noah Beery Jr appears yet again in one of his decent reliable cowhand roles. It is a somewhat dark psychodrama and not what you could describe as a traditional western. But it is very, very good like much of Daves excellent canon of work. I have given it four stars but it comes very close to five. Highly recommended.

Please note that the following review is for the region A locked Criterion Collection Blu ray release of the classic 1956 western Jubal. As is the case with a handful of other Criterion titles I managed to bypass the region coding on my UK Panasonic BD80 by stopping the disc on the 'mismatched region' screen and pressing top menu on the remote control. As far as I know this trick only works on Panasonic equipment and on certain Blu rays from particular labels.
It is always refreshing to discover a vintage film I never knew existed and thoroughly enjoy it as much as life long favourites. Delmer Daves' 1956 produced Jubul falls perfectly into this bracket making it one of my finest blind buys and a movie I will definatly be revisiting in the not too distant future.

Whilst traveling through the mountains of Wyoming, prominent but good natured ranch owner Shep Horgan(Ernest Borgnine)happens across Jubal Troop(Glen Ford) a loner with a chequered history and air of mystery surrounding him who travels from ranch to ranch working either sheep or cattle but who has fallen on hard times, frozen, hungry and practically unable to stand. Being an honest and kind hearted soul, Shep picks up Jubal and takes him back to his ranch with the offer of joining his three man team of cowboys to work and maintain his sprawling cattle estate. Much to the dislike of Shep's lead cowhand Pinky(Rod Steiger), Shep decides to make Jubal foreman despite his relatively short employment, liking his honesty, calm demeanor and straight forward way of talking. Jubal reluctantly accepts the job instantly making a sworn enemy of Pinky despite the easy going nature of the other two cowhands whilst at the same time attracting the unwanted attention of Shep's beautiful Canadian wife Mae(Valerie French).
