In a late-career highlight for Stanwyck, she portrays a wealthy landowner exerting influence over an Arizonian township by commanding a staff of 40 men. But the arrival of a new US Marshal makes life difficult. Beautifully shot in ’Scope, packed with psychosexual subtext and directed with characteristic bravura, Fuller’s second western influenced a generation of filmmakers, including Godard and Leone.
