Los Angeles: Paramount Pictures, 1950. Vintage keybook photograph from the 1950 film noir Western, showing actors Barbara Stanwyck and Gilbert Roland.

Based on the 1948 novel by Niven Busch. A tense, vengeful western which owes as much to archetypes of Greek tragedy and Shakespearean drama as it does to the conventions of the genre, following a rancher's strong-willed daughter who seeks revenge on her father for the wrongful hanging of her best friend. One of the few films in the noir canon that is also a Western.

Set in New Mexico, shot on location in Arizona.

8 x 10 inches. Fine.
