Excellent minor Western, beautifully shot by Russell Harlan (Red River). Joel McCrea is the reluctant outlaw who robs the bank when it won't lend him the money he needs to help his father - and to show he's no ordinary thief he leaves an IOU. Charles Bickford, always a commanding screen presence, is the town's new marshal, Pat Garrett, who pursues him across the desert.

I saw this film when I was about 10 years old & have never frogotten its tender theme which left a lasting impression on me. I have never seen it since but live in hope that it may be screened some time on TV.
