Day of the Outlaw

Day of the Outlaw carries further (and further inward) the viciousness of The Indian Fighter, with its claustrophobic tensions coiled tight in a snowbound township when the arrival of a murderous renegade cavalry unit interrupts Ryan's attempt to reclaim his woman and his land. The incisive bleakness of Philip Yordan's script finds its perfect complement in the absurdist violence of De Toth's direction.

The plot is clear, but here and there (yet not quite everywhere) the viewer not having read the novel seems likely to be left analysing the motivation to action. Four stars, anyway, for a strong cast.
