    The more I see of Jacques Tourneur the more impressed I am. This is a really nuanced Western yarn with an unusual setting–the gold-mining West just before the Civil War. It hasn’t been declared but the passions are already rising, and they’re all mixed up with characters’ personal desires. Really well done.
