From the master of the B movie quickie, a rather studio-bound but compellingly tense Western. Kennedy plays a marauding bandit who, after the death of his sidekick, invades the home of a Mexican farmer (Iglesias), draws him into crime, and falls for his wife (St John). Unusually for Ulmer, it was shot in Technicolor, which is employed for some tellingly expressionistic effects. The film's romantic triangle was even an inspiration for Truffaut's Jules and Jim.
