Blood on the Moon

  • Film
  • Westerns
A bevy of late '40s RKO talent, including ace cameraman Nick Musuraca, combine to make an intriguing noir Western. A complex tale of duplicity and split loyalties is played out against a noir backdrop of low-ceilinged bars and rain-soaked windswept darkness. Mitchum delivers his customarily immaculate, stoned performance as a reluctant hired gun duped into heading a trumped-up homesteaders' revolt, and Bel Geddes plays the spunky cowgirl who engages him in erotic gun-play.
