While waiting in the ruins of his family home with the woman he loves, Jeb (Robert Mitchum) is pursued by traumatic childhood memories. In a life dominated by violence and adversity he has had to kill his adoptive brother, is hated by his foster-mother (Judith Anderson), chased by the head of the family (Dean Jagger) and married his adoptive sister (Teresa Wright) who might just be planning to kill him on their wedding night to avenge her brother. The four leads are astounding and James Wong Howe's tightly dramatic photography as the fifth main character, adds hugely to the menace and mystery. An unforgettable film and a truly great Western!
