| Above average American western
Jimmy Stewart plays a former railroad worker who accepts a small job from his former employer; To carry a large sum of money aboard a train to make sure it reaches it's destination. He gets robbed, and by someone he has a past with.

Very predictable and by and large a very typical American western. The story is familiar and practically transparent, but it's got the irresistibly appealing Stewart to carry it. The film is also incredibly beautiful to look at. I read somewhere that this was the first film to be shot in 2.35:1 framing, a very wide screen format, and it works beautifully. With all these insanely vivid colors and the huge scenery depicted here, one could freeze many frames here and hang them on a wall. It's that beautiful at times.

Verdict; Solid, above average American western. Still like those Italian westerns more.
