This film originally made for TV was released theatrically in Europe. It was one of several such movies directed by Don Siegal during his five year absence from making feature films. The film starred that aging cinema great Henry Fonda, who still looked pretty good in his sixties. He was yet to make Sergio Leone's epic "Once Upon a Time in the West"(69). It also starred that fine actor Dan Duryea in one his last roles. By this time Duryea was looking old and played the role of a sympathetic aging gunman.

The plot bears remarkable similarities to John Sturges "Bad Day at Black Rock"(54). In that film a one armed war veteran arrives at a small western outpost by train and is menaced by a gang of thugs after probing into the brutal truth surrounding a murder. In this film Fonda, in a strangely disheveled drunken guise and making some very odd faces, also arrives at an isolated post called Banner where he stumbles onto a murder victim. He too is menaced by a gang of thugs led by Michael Parks. Fonda is forced to flee for his life with the gang in hot pursuit. They head to an inevitable showdown where Fonda is forced to face his demons from the past.

The film also boasts an excellent support cast including big names like Sal Mineo who plays a young thug, and Anne Baxter as a widow who proves a distraction for Fonda. Rodolfo Acosta that veteran of Mexican roles also turns up in his usual sombrero. By TV movie standards this is an extremely good film, but in comparison with feature films it does not fare so well, despite the presence of all the luminaries. It pales beside "Bad Day at Black Rock" which was a far superior film. The villain of the piece Michael Parks is certainly no Robert Ryan who menaced Spencer Tracy so memorably in Bad Day.

A TV movie and at times it feels like it. The storyline is somewhat predictable with Henry Fonda as an "alcoholic saddle tramp" arriving in a western town dominated by corrupt lawmen. The plot is somewhat weak and you know he will somehow turn the tables. The fim is saved by the strong performances of Fonda and Dan Duryea. Worth a look and will be liked by western afficiandoes

This is a very good Western. The story is quite simple, but it is the way that it is told and the great acting, especially Henry Fonda and Dan Duryea. If you're looking for a good quality Western look no further.

Format: DVD Verified Purchase
A drifter (Henry Fonda) riding the boxcars on the railway gets off in a small railroad town looking for a girl (Madlyn Rhue). When he asks about her, the townspeople get nervous and refuse to talk or they threaten him but when she turns up dead, he is accused of the killing. This pedestrian western was directed by Don Siegel (INVASION OF THE BODY SNATCHERS), who clearly wasn't interested in the material and who can blame him? It's negligible stuff and there wasn't much anyone could do with the material. Fonda goes through the motions and the other performances range from good (Dan Duryea) to bad (Michael Parks). The generic score is by Leonard Rosenman. With Anne Baxter (who looks great), Sal Mineo (wasted as a hired gunslinger), Lloyd Bochner, Bernie Hamilton and Michael Burns.

The Optimum DVD from England is a strong 1.33 transfer. Since it was shot for television, the aspect ratio is correct.
