New Mexico and an MGM backlot stand in for the lawless wilds of old Oklahoma in Ted Post’s straightforward western which is heavy on the camerawork—lots of swinging nooses, sagebrush desert, and close-ups of Eastwood’s squinty eyes—but falls short of the morality play it was clearly meant to be. Aside from Pat Hingle’s animated presence as the "hangin' judge" plus a short but amusing turn on the gallows from veteran character actor James Westerfield and Ed Begley’s dead serious role as the head vigilante, everyone else turns in clunky performances especially Stevens whose tragic sorrow only goes skin deep and Eastwood who was just perfecting his immovable face and menacing monotone. Look for cameos from the likes of Alan Hale Jr., Dennis Hopper, and a very young Bruce Dern because there isn’t much else of note.

Entertaining classic Western movie. Clint suits the main role, and the whole movie was simple/predictable. Recommend

Released in 1968 - This gritty, Hollywood Western goes well out of its way to shamelessly imitate the Spaghetti Westerns that were so popular at the time. As usual - Eastwood is over-praised for his bland, nothing performance.

Ok Western starring Clint Eastwood ( after his successful bout in the Leone ' Man With No Name ' trilogy )- the film goes on mite too long and is a little muddled near the end.
