The legendary Jean Simmons (Angel Face, Spartacus) saddles up for this gripping, modern-day western as a sheltered girl living miles from civilization, whose quiet life is shattered by the intrusion of two desperate men. Rory Calhoun (River of No Return) plays Ed Stone, accused of murdering the brother of Sheriff Munson (Stephen McNally, Winchester '73), both of whom are en route to jail when their plane crashes in a torrential rainstorm that forces them to seek refuge at the High Sierra ranch run by Simmons and her absent father (Brian Aherne, I Confess). Suspicion, attraction and fear are just some of the emotions that rise to the boiling point when the threesome are forced to bide time in the tiny house. What happens next will keep you glued to your seat. John Farrow (Hondo) directs this small-scale yet powerful suspense film, propelled by a terrific score by Academy Award® winner Dimitri Tiomkin (High Noon, 1952). Newly remastered.
