I have a great affection for both Faith Domergue and Jeff Chandler. I do not feel that they got the scripts they deserved, and I believe this was the first time they acted together. The chemistry was good, but sadly the film should have expanded Domergue's role more than it did. Given the grand title the film needed more playing time and probably would have had if Cinemascope had been on offer in 1953. Bur given these quibbles the film is solid, thoughtful and has a liberal feeling to it often lacking in Westerns. The friendship between the Indian woman and Domergue is one example. I will not give any spoilers but just say that I would prefer to see this kind of Western than many others that have an over masculine bravado and a total indifference to the loss of the Indian populations which was too often portrayed.
