| a great little gem
I found this movie to be excellent. I think it did not find an audience because of its dark tone. It explores the concept of death in a unique way for a western. The light comedy interspersed was a nice relief. Definitely worth watching for any western fans. Glenn Ford was magnificent. Jack Lemmon, while showing his flair for comedy, was subtly profound. The movie itself is profound in a subtle way. We can relate to Lemmon's character easily-stuck in a boring job and wishing for something more. Finding something more however, doesn't bring the joy he thought it would. He changes and grows;his relationship with Ford is terrific. This is not a western that glorifies the life of the cowboy. Rather, you see the grim, hard life that tries to suck the sweetness of man out of him.
