I thought of this as well but it makes sense that he didn't.
That stable is somebodies bread and butter. If he were to burn it down against the wishes of the townspeople then he might be facing a revolt, especially with the already delicate situation brought up by Scott.

despite all of its stupidity I really like it for the reasons Titoli brought up.
These surprises redeem the logical fallacies.

It seems that Boetticher's town based Westerns (This and Buchanon Rides Alone) all have some problems in the brains department while his bigger movies (which are little stories masked by large landscapes) are tighter.
That said I still really like the two town films.

Possibly. That thought never occurred to me because I thought that Kimbrough (sp?) would have paid off the owner if he burned it down.

Yeah, I love all the Ranown westerns, flaws and all. I don't criticize movies for flaws nearly as much as I did at one point. I'm much more interested in the visuals, atmosphere and pacing. Boetticher's westerns have a very grand, powerful feeling to them.

Check out the 2 hr cut of the Bullfighter and the Lady if you haven't.

Whatever faults you guys mentioned I didn't care about while watching it. I didn't even notice them, to be honest. This must be one of the best town-bound talkies I've seen, only near the end the feeling that there's too much talk starts to creep in, but luckily the movie ends soon. Very entertaining movie, with a great psychological twist. Good acting too.


7.5/10

just saw the dvd for the first time; I'd give it a 6/10.

-- Both actresses are terrible.

-- Burning down the stable should have been a no-brainer; the villain had the town in his back pocket and could have easily paid well for it.

Burning down could mean that the whole town burns down.
