just saw the movie again. And I have to say, I was definitely wrong about it the first time.

I'd rate it a 6.5/10.
There's nothing too interesting here, but it's a very pretty movie to look at.

Virginia Mayo, who's usually very good, did not give a very good performance here. Karen Steele gave a good performance. And Steele has pretty blue eyes. As for the music, it's just the same one little melody over and over and over.

IMO there are 4 good Boetticher/Scott Westerns: Ride Lonesome, The Tall T, Seven Men from Now, and Comanche Station. Those 4 all rank somewheres between a 7.5-8/10.

Not the pair of her assets I usually think of first. Wink

That's what you get, Drink, for being such an annoying Melville fanboy.

If all I mention are the eyes, that means I don't think her face is too pretty ;-) ...... Anyway, I suppose Steele and Mayo do have nice racks

Very entertaining, which can't always be said for other Boetticher, Kennedy, Scott flicks.  A cheap shooting finale, but the fact that Scott goes for the widow comes unexpected. 7\10
