Directed by William Wellman
Screen legends Gregory Peck (On the Beach) and Richard Widmark (Road House) co-star in this brilliantly cast western epic featuring an unusually fine story and magnificent direction by the great William Wellman (The Ox-Bow Incident) - unleashing dramatic power seldom found in this type of film. A band of outlaws, led by tough, gruff Stretch (Peck), find themselves knocking at death's door after becoming lost in the treacherous western Badlands - only to find their salvation in a lonesome town called Yellow Sky, where the only inhabitants are a doddering old man and his mysterious alluring daughter. But their deliverance from danger is short-lived when the gang discovers a fateful secret hidden within the dusty, rotting walls of this ghost town - one that will turn brother against brother in a desperate battle to the death! Beautifully shot in glorious black-and-white by Joseph MacDonald (My Darling Clementine) and features a splendid cast that includes Anne Baxter (The Blue Gardenia), John Russell (Fort Massacre) and Harry Morgan (TV’s Dragnet and M*A*S*H).
