(1943) In 1885 Nevada, cowpokes Henry Fonda and Harry (M*A*S*H) Morgan find a trail break in town turning into a lynch mob frenzy, with Dana Andrews, Anthony Quinn and Francis Ford (John’s older brother) ticketed for the rope — but are they really guilty? Wellman’s labor of love shattered sagebrush stereotypes.
"A magnificent film... As the work of unhampered artists, it is for the audience a thrilling experience... A significant moment in our culture."
– Manny Farber
“A flawless work, one of the greatest of Westerns, featuring one of Henry Fonda's finest performances.”
– John Andrew Gallagher & Frank Thompson
“Impressively taut… Its affinity to film noir is evident not only in the dark shadowy photography, but in the gallery of grotesques that populates this decidedly uncelebratory portrait of the frontier spirit.”
– Geoff Andrew, Time Out (London)
