| excellent and well-thought-out Western
The acting of both Jimmy Stewart and Arthur Kennedy lifted this film well above the norm for a Hollywood Western. In particular, I liked Kennedy as the slimy guy you know MUST go bad before the picture is complete. Rock Hudson is fine, though not especially distinguished in his supporting role. On top of these two excellent performances, the writing is stellar, as the story is far from the typical production. It takes a lot of twists and turns and keeps your attention throughout. And, finally, the location cinematography is excellent, as the film has realism that is so often lacking in other Westerns--it is obvious this was filmed outdoors and not in some studio. All-in-all, an excellent film.
