An underrated western with lovely performances from Yul Brynner and Janice Rule. Director Richard Wilson had worked with Orson Welles on his theater projects and that influence is evident in the adapted screenplay he wrote. The film questions the moral superiority of the Unionists over the Confederates. Is racism merely related to a white versus black confrontation or wider? The film is lifted by the spoken word.
