| Typical Western from the 1960s with good performances
This 1964 Western is set in a New Mexican town during 1865, and it's about a Civil War veteran (played by George Segal) that returns home only to find his ranch sold and his girlfriend married to another man. Plus, the town folks decide to hire a gunfighter to kill the Confederate, a creole from Louisiana (played by Yul Brynner).

Even if clichèd and talky, this Western is surprisingly good: it was filmed in location, the direction by Richard Wilson is top-notch and the performances are worth-seeing, especially the ones from Segal and Brynner, as they play the ancient game of cat-and-mouse, with (as you can guess) Segal winning. In the cast also Janice Rule and Clifton James.

Plus, this Western gives also a moral lesson about racism and judging others on appearence only.
