This review is from: Last Train From Gun Hill [DVD]  (DVD)
Westerns are so often cliche ridden, sprawling and predictable. But under John Sturges's tight direction this is a first rate and gripping movie. Excellent acting from all three leads. Sturges was a fine director - Bad Day at Black Rock (sadly not available on region 2 DVD - why not?)and The Magnificent Seven are better known but this is just as good.The cinematography is superb.If you like high quality suspense movies this is highly recommended.

This is 'just as good' as Bad Day at Black Rock and the Magnificent Seven, yet only rates four stars... ??

Fair point, William ! Maybe I should have given it five - however I do have a higher regard for Leone's 'Once Upon A Time in the West' and Eastwood's 'Unforgiven' and I would award five stars for both of those. Many thanks for your response anyway - it is good to have other comments. Cheers.
