Tribute to a Bad Man

Film, Action and adventure

Time Out says

Cagney dominates the Wyoming range in this absorbing Western. Jack Schaefer's story focuses on a cattle baron's ruthless hold on his vast territory and the tension that arises when his Greek mistress Papas attracts the wrong kind of attention from farmhand Dubbins. Good stuff, with a worthwhile concentration on the way the West actually worked for a living, and Cagney making an impressive replacement for Spencer Tracy, who walked off the picture after quarrelling with director Wise. 'Scope photography by Robert Surtees; music by Miklos Rozsa.
