James Stewart rebooted his career and nice-guy image with the first of eight oaters he made with Anthony Mann, justly admired for their tortured psychology (at least by 1950s standards). The title firearm, won by and stolen from Stewart’s deadeye, links together a panoply of characters as it passes from hand to hand. A nearly perfect Western, marred slightly by casting Rock Hudson as an Indian war chief. -Lee Gardner
