In his last great role, Gary Cooper powerfully demonstrates why he will forever be remembered as one of the most original and authentic stars of the screen.
When the train he is on gets robbed, Link Jones (Cooper) finds himself unwillingly reunited with his old gang. Dock Tobin (Lee J. Cobb), the gang's sadistic, half-crazed patriarch, was like a father to Link some twenty years ago and welcomes him back. To survive, Link must take up his old ways – his killing ways. What was once his ”family” has now become his hell.
Renowned for its breathtakingly violent fist fight between Cooper and bad guy Jack Lord (”Hawaii Five-O”), director Anthony Mann's powerful allegory has since gained a reputation as one of the finest achievements of the golden age of westerns.
