| A forgotten, unknown Masterpiece among B Westerns...
Unfortunately, this was the only Western directed by the talented Mark Robson. Has an excellent, tight screenplay by Daniel Mainwaring (AKA Geoffrey Homes) and Hugo Butler, from a story by Peter Viertel. The film boasts unusual violence for the Genre and for its time, with uniformly outstanding performances by Gloria Grahame, Claude Jarman Jr., Myrna Dell, John Ireland and Jeff Donnell. Character actors James Bell, Jeff Corey and Sara Haden were exceptionally good in small roles. Surprisingly, the usually dull leading man Robert Sterling proved he could act.

Other highlights: the impeccable Joe Biroc photography, an evocative score by the underrated Roy Webb and the women costumes by Renie. Shamefully, as with many RKO Titles, WarnerVideo never released it on VHS, and the first DVD (Made on order) came out in January 2016!. If you love Westerns do not miss ROUGHSHOD, is on a par with the all time great.
