The Broken Star (1956) - 4/10. Basically an example of Bad Cop Noir, dressed up as a Western. Howard Duff does his usual charming no-goodnick turn, and dull Bill Williams plays his colleague buddy who doesn't want to believe that his fellow marshal has turned to the dark side. Mostly uninteresting, there is one nightclub/saloon spot that now plays as camp: a singer who intones "I hate you, I hate you, I hate you" while lashing the air with her bullwhip.

In case someone feels like punishing himself.
