Co-produced by Randolph Scott, this western, like most of the films of de De Toth-Scott association in the 50's, allows the actor to give to his character a depth one doesn't often see in this kind of production. In Man in the Saddle, Owen Merritt is rather slippery, he doesn't want confrontation and prefers to avoid responsibilities. Also note the final showdown in a town shaken by a whirlwind. Highly recommended.
