Just saw that one for the first time.  Anybody seen it?

Very interesting Audie Murphy Universal film from 1961. Really dark and violent,
quite unusual for a Hollywood western. Already goes in the SW direction...
Interesting John Saxon support and Lee van Cleef is in it too. Recommended.

Good little actioner. Only Murphy is miscast as usual. 6/10

One of the 3000 westerns which would have benefited from Robert Mitchum in the lead.

But it is not unusual for an US western. The western was always a violent and often dirty genre, and the violence in US western was increasing in these days without any SW influence.
