The Man from Colorado

Time Out says

An uncredited King Vidor allegedly shot some of this intriguing but not wholly achieved psychological Western (from a story by Borden Chase), which has twitchy cavalry officer Ford transformed by his Civil War experiences into a disturbed killer. The outlook is not good when he's appointed a noose-happy judge, leaving former adjutant Holden to rebel against his subsequent reign of terror. The scenario alludes to the homecoming traumas of WWII combatants, but the characterisation, regrettably, lacks the deftness to give the movie real punch.
