Wyoming's scenic splendors against which the story is filmed are breathtaking. Sunlight, the shadow of rain storms and the eerie lights of night play a realistic part in making the picture a visual treat.

Contains something more than beauty and the grandeur of the mountains and plains, drenched by the brilliant Western sunshine...

There are intriguing mysteries, puzzles and challenges, not least in the title character and the way he is played by Alan Ladd.
