A superior version of the story about a drifter with a mysterious past turning up and being taken in by a rancher. There are good performances from the leading actors, but it is Ernest Borgnine who steals the show with a performance to match that of his Oscar-winning turn in Marty. His transformation from a happy man to a man with pure revenge in his eyes was incredible. Reminded me of the role played by Edward G. Robinson in Two Seconds (1932). There is the added bonus of the film being shot in glorious colour. Great film.
