What are people saying?

  • FISCHER's rating of the film Drum Beat

    Delmer Daves a toujours été et reste un grand spécialiste du western : action bien rythmée, choix judicieux des extérieurs, prétexte à une splendide photographie des paysages sauvages voilés de brume, effets spectaculaires, jusqu'à la musique qui colle à l'action. Cependant le happy end de ce film estimable semble bien conventionnel.
