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.

4.0 out of 5 stars Othello Goes West 25 July 2009
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.

An above average western with strong performances by a top line cast featuring Glenn Ford, Ernest Borgnine, Rod Steiger and Charles Bronson, amongst others. A solid story and some wonderful cinematography. Recommended.

5.0 out of 5 stars Why I love Jubal 17 Mar 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
I am pleased to own a copy of this fine movie. The photography and scenery are breathtaking and it is a gripping story. The gentle-mannered Jubal triumphs over the mischief making of others - a reassuring message for those who experience it in real life.

3.0 out of 5 stars Jubal 13 Mar 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
This is an unusual western movie inasmuch as it is based on a "love story" that did not go the way we expected. Glenn Ford plays the hero as usual, but does not gun down competitors. There is some great acting there, but not quite what we expected. It probably grows on you at the second and third viewing
