“The reigning king of Southwestern noir.”
–Nick Pinkerton, The Village Voice
“A pulpy pictorial symphony of frames within frames, foreground-to-background dynamism, and razor-sharp coupling of faces.”
–Bruce Bennett, The New York Sun
Director Richard Fleischer’s noir-melodrama hybrid is a widescreen sensation, pitting a trio of vicious bank robbers (with Lee Marvin the sadistic standout) against a small Arizona mining town riddled with secret sins. Adulterers, alcoholics, voyeurs, and thieves—given life by a stellar cast of Hollywood stalwarts including Victor Mature, Richard Egan, Sylvia Sidney, Ernest Borgnine, and J. Carroll Naish—all find their fates hanging in the balance on one Violent Saturday.
