1946 | CTC | 92 mins| USA | D: Jacques Tourneur 

Tourneur’s first Western and his first film in colour, is a hauntingly subdued drama about a frontier community trying to establish itself in the wilderness, in the face of human weaknesses and Native American hostilities.  Martin Scorsese describes it as a “’noir western’… one of the most mysterious and exquisite examples of the western genre ever made.”  The French director and cineaste, Bertrand Tavernier, is also a devoted fan and regards it as “incredibly innovative.”  Dana Andrews and Susan Hayward give performances that are calm and adult in a way that is not only unusual in a Western but perhaps in any genre from the Hollywood studios at this time.  Tourneur’s use of colour is equally subdued, beautiful and expressive.
