Epic 1953 western directed by George Stevens. Classic good vs. evil stuff, with added emphasis on the mountainous backdrop. It’s not particularly subversive of the Western cliché and is really just men vs. men, protecting the women, children and elderly. Overlong fades and dissolves – though this does build up an intensity and drama, the plot prevents it from being genuinely affecting/included.
