This movie is shit. 5/10

Never seen a worse instance of day-night screwups. There is a scene with a character walking down a dark street at night, then all of a sudden it's day, then it's night again ... It is awful. Rest of the movie is crap, too. Randolph Scott and Charles McGraw make it watchable. But it's really shit
