You can see how the makers of Along the Great Divide (1950) played off this in the opening of their film.

One guy has a scarf under his hat in one scene like Loco in TGS.

Not this fella, I presume:






The guy opens and closes the movie and what do they do? - They send him in naked. Can you believe this?

Looks like John Carradine, though uncredited at IMDB.

That's a good call, he does resemble John Carradine.

Ehm, or not, John Carradine was in his mid 30s at the time... Undecided

Ibought the dvd today and watched it. I had seen it before in the early '80's bt dubbed and found out the dubbing was damaging conferring it too much melodrama. The movie is very good but for some detail: the too many scenes shot in the studio scenes (even the sound of gunshots comes out muflled) which diminish the drama of the lynching: the actor playing the posse leader looks too artificial; which adds to the artificality of the character (the suicide is an exaggeration); the letter is too clever; and as said by Dust Devil, more could have been shown of the lynchers state of mind after the fact. With the above exception, all great performances. Jane Darwell, as a fat bitch, finally finds the role of her life (at least in westerns) after the tons of Ford's schlock. 7\10

The Ox-Bow Incident - 7/10 - Pretty good, well-acted social drama (barely a Western except for the costumes) that never really rises above a simple morality play.

If you ask me, this film barely qualifies as a Western. It's a decent little morality play, albeit with an obvious message, but nothing terribly profound or insightful, and it lacks most of the generic conventions aside from costumes. I think all of us know lynching is bad.

It's the first anti-western.
Made against the then accepted genre conventions it is a western, as it is relying on the genre patterns, even if it is the negation of those.

And it was pretty courageous to make in the middle of WW2 a western which portrays the typical pioneers as little fascists.

Yeah, luckily for all of us, the situation around the globe drastically changed since this movie was made.
