This was a fantastic film and reminded me of a western version of 12 Angry Men. The final 10 minutes were absolutely brilliant. Hopefully after some more votes it'll slip into the IMDb top 250. I don't know why it's not there already, it has a rating of 8.2/10 from 9,500 votes.
@dombrewer: "Anthony Quinn trying to be Mexican and doing a great job"
Antonio Rodolfo Quinn Oaxaca, Anthony Quinn, was born in Chihuahua, Mexico during the Mexican Revolution.
So simply done but so powerful. It's message still rings true today, with or without wild posses. The message it brings is something you will remember all your life.
