Dir. Raoul Walsh. 1947, 101 mins. Archival 35mm print courtesy of the UCLA Film & TV Archive. With Teresa Wright, Robert Mitchum, Judith Anderson, Dean Jagger, Alan Hale Sr., Harry Carey Jr. In this masterful psychological western, Robert Mitchum stars as the doomed Jeb Rand, a soldier-turned-gambler haunted by a repressed trauma and flashing visions of shiny spurs. As a child, Jeb was adopted by Mrs. Callum (the great Judith Anderson) and told not to ask about his past; he loves his stepsister (Teresa Wright), and is vexed by the disdain of his stepbrother. Director Raoul Walsh and cinematographer James Wong Howe fill the open landscape of the Southwest with an oppressive dread, while the shadowy interiors hint at the domestic disarray at the heart of the drama. Howe’s low-key lighting and deep-focus interiors transplant the look and feel of film noir to the western.
