Intrested in what other forum members think of this film. A rancher ( Van Heflin) has two sons (Tab Hunter, James Darren) that he has tried to raise in the image of himself, a hard man. One of the sons(Hunter)feels he lives in the shadow of his fatherand tries to be too much like him which leads to tragedy.
I think this is a very neglected film, a good superior western that holds the attention and has a good story and is well acted by all. One of quite a few westerns from the late 50’s that strove to add an adult dimension to the western genre and this one i feel works well, and it doesn’t pull it’s punches and end up sentimental like some films of the time. a good film.
