Fonda makes a superb replacement for Stewart (the director and his favored star fell out on Night Passage), Neville Brand's tough bad `un, who wants Perkins' badge for a hunting license, makes a worthy adversary and the final showdown is brilliantly staged, and Elmer Bernstein's score is a definite plus (and a world away from the south of the border energy of his post-Magnificent Seven genre efforts). Mann's last great Western, it deserves to be better known.
Sadly, no extras - not even a trailer.
fonda plays a bounty hunter who brings his prey in to collect the bounty,the young sheriff has just started the job and fonda can see that unless he is guided he will soon be dead,fonda shows the sheriff the ropes but declines an offer of a badge.its not long before trouble arrives for the sheriff ,will fonda help the sheriff or ride out and condemn him you will have to see the film to find out ,i can assure you this film is good very good indeed even in black/white.
Lee Van Cleef plays a villain.
However the plot overrides imbecile sets and costumes. Henry Fonda, Betsy Palmer, and Anthony Perkins portray strong and credible characters. Indeed, every character in this movie is credible, even in the minor roles, and every sub-plot adds to the story. The screenplay was nominated for an Oscar, and should have won that. The photography is masterly.
Given a decent production i would have rated this as a five star movie. The lazy production lowers this considerably. One for your collection, but far from the best.
