KIRKUS REVIEW

That lonesome road to justice (in the shadow of High Noon) follows Calem Ware, the Marshal of Medicine Bend whose wife had left him- rather than share with him in the bloodshed his efforts to keep the peace entailed. Now, ten years later, considering marriage to another man, Dorry Dean, she watches Calem as he outshoots and outlives the professional killers Dean imports in his attempt to take over the town, and Calem- his job done- turns in his star. Recognizably reminiscent, but spartan stuff.
