Reasonably impressive and spectacular, with solid characterisation, an exceptional supporting cast, and wonderful photography by Charles Lang; but somehow it doesn't quite take off like John Ford's My Darling Clementine , which covered virtually the same events, and it's a shade overlong. It received Oscar nominations for best editing (Warren Low) and sound (George Dutton). Sturges made a sequel, Hour of the Gun (1967), but it wasn't as enjoyable.
