| Mini Eastwood
A wandering saddle tramp comes upon a woman living in a remote section of the prairie. The wife of a prominent landowner, she was kidnapped by marauding Apaches and held prisoner for over a decade before being rescued. Now adorned with visible reminders of her captivity her husband has chosen to isolate her instead of bringing her back to her rightful home. The saddle tramp befriends her and sets out to right things at his own peril.

This atmospheric Western, an abbreviated Eastwood oater, has a real good look, is skillfully shot, has some fine compositions and is dramatically well paced. Where it weakens is in the pivotal meeting scene between husband, wife and drifter which doesn't live up to the dramatic pitch that it has been building. It does however maintain it's good look from start to finish.
