Last of three famous Westerns starring James Stewart and directed by Anthony Mann
also starring Arthur Kennedy Donald Crisp Alex Nicol
A man's search for his brother's murderer leads him to the sun-baked wastelands of New Mexico, where he comes into conflict with the weak and vicious son of a local cattle baron.
As with Winchester '73 and Where the River Bends, Anthony Mann's brilliant appreciation of the size and scope of the Western landscape produces some breath-taking backgrounds to this exciting story starring James Stewart as the man determined to avenge his brother's death.

Action from two famous Football League grounds in the First Division.
Match No 1 is a North-South clash involving two of Britain's most progressive sides.
Match No 2 comes from the Midlands where there is buoyant enthusiasm for success this season in all four Divisions of the Football League.
