Released from the Yuma Prison in 1898, ex-killer John McBain wants to go straight while ex-robber Peter Van Hoek seeks revenge but their destinies eventually converge in the mining town of Prescott.
This was produced during the famed musician's strike of 1958, forcing MGM to score it with stock cues from earlier films, many of them sub-standard and/or inappropriate to the scene in question. It remains the film's chief sore spot.
Peter Van Hoek:
How about being an outside partner?
John McBain: No, I wouldn't make a partnership with God.
Right when they are leaving the collapsed mine, two people are visible, one in a white shirt, next to the corner of the adobe building in the background. They quickly get back behind the building.
