    Yes, there's that ending - but in general the movie (great as it is in many respects) suffers from overlength. It takes much too long to get the drama going, so a bit tighter editing of the opening half hour would have been welcome.
    That said, in many ways it sums up many of the best features of the western genre, and Clift and Wayne make for a compelling onscreen duo.
