>>> Un western hyper-classique qui rappelle étrangement par son scénario, "La poursuite infernale" et qui a gardé, malgré le temps un évident souffle épique et un remarquable dynamisme dans les scènes d'action. Pour conclure, le duo Lancaster/Douglas reste inoubliable. Il est vrai que John Sturges n'est pas le premier venu et qu'il donna ses lettres de noblesse, au genre... www.cinefiches.com
I'm such a sucker for the BroMance that is Wyatt Earp and Doc Holliday. This was wildly inaccurate but I'm over that kind of stuff if the movie is done right and this is pretty damn well done right. Kirk just won second place in my greatest docs on film.Now mind you I have NOT finished"DOC"yet so Keach may pass himHe was on that path. Anywho, Hopper is in this!Man he really spaned about every era eh?Gunfight is tits
Super-western classico,prima della rivoluzione targata Leone-Peckinpah.Qui le figure leggendarie sono inserite alla grande negli spazi e nella musica,Sturges crea un rapporto virile magnifico tra Lancaster e Douglas e gestisce la tensione da Maestro sino all'atteso finale.Solido,efficace e senza fronzoli,forse la trasposizione più riuscita della figura di Wyatt Earp. Epocale, da 4*
There's more life in any of this picture's shots than in all the shots of Ozu's "An Autumn Afternoon". I'm making this comparison because Sturges is a very unknown director and Ozu is so much famous (also, I watched "An Autumn Afternoon" recently and didn't like it). I really don't understand all that bullshit about Ozu's static shots: Sturge's shots, static or not, are as beautiful and true as shots can be.
