As a director, Wellman had the versatility, if not the distinctiveness, of Howard Hawks, traversing nearly every genre and producing solid work in each of them. Yet few of his films more clearly demonstrate his skills than Yellow Sky, which exhibits the virtue of his surface-oriented style. The film’s conflicts are primarily internal, but Wellman eschews psychology for primal struggles over hunger, thirst, lust and greed, filming the men’s madness matter-of-factly.

A wonderfully disorienting cinematic experience… Part-western but also part-noir, style is key in Yellow Sky, as Wellman highlights the expansive landscapes with disjointed camera angles, too-close-for-comfort close-ups, and high-contrast black and white photography. You see and feel the space and, after a misleadingly jovial theme song that leads into a brief cue from Oh Susanna, you also hear it, as Wellman strips the movie of any soundtrack except the uncomfortable sound of silence.
