(1948, Robert Wise) Robert Preston’s working a complicated scam on cattle rancher Tom Tully when a tough friend of Preston’s wanders in (is he good or bad? He’s Robert Mitchum!). Authentic Film Noir Western. 35mm print courtesy BFI, London. Approx. 88 min.
“A bevy of late '40s RKO talent, including ace cameraman Nick Musuraca, combine to make an intriguing Noir Western. A complex tale of duplicity and split loyalties is played out against a noir backdrop of low-ceilinged bars and rain-soaked windswept darkness.”
– Nigel Algar, Time Out (London)
