Product Description

Amazon.ca

The Anthony Mann-Jimmy Stewart Westerns in the 1950s infused the genre with a psychological intensity and psychopathic edge. The brutal The Naked Spur, their third collaboration, is generally considered their best work together and one of the finest Westerns ever made. Stewart is a hard, angry bounty hunter tracking outlaw Robert Ryan in this lean five-character drama set in the deceptively beautiful mountain wilderness of the Midwest. Stewart finds himself saddled with two unwanted partners, sourdough prospector Millard Mitchell (his sidekick in the earlier Mann Western Winchester '73) and dishonorably discharged cavalry officer Ralph Meeker. Ryan's tomboyish sidekick Janet Leigh becomes increasingly torn between duty to her desperate guardian and her growing attraction to Stewart. The rugged landscape of jutting peaks, narrow passes, and torrential rivers is as gorgeous as it is dangerous: a well-protected plateau becomes a sniper's perch, an old mine turns from protective cave to dangerous cave-in. Stewart delivers the most ruthless performance of his career as a man haunted by betrayal, unwilling to trust and unable to love. Ryan's jovial banter and charm masks a cold-blooded savagery (he once remarked that it's his favorite performance). The tension stretches to the breaking point in this taut battle of wits, which culminates in a standoff next to the white water of a raging river, where Mann brilliantly uses the jagged landscape as a deadly battleground--nature itself becomes an enemy. --Sean Axmaker

A reluctant bounty hunter tries to bring in his crafty quarry with the help of two unwanted partners, a luckless prospector and a cashiered Army officer. The situation is further complicated by the outlaw's young girlfriend. This film is a rare combination of a well-written story, expert direction, beautiful location photography, and excellent performances from a cast of skilled actors. Highly recommended.

I remember a few years ago watching on tv this movie for the first time. It is an outstanding western. One of the best westerns I have ever seen. Jimmy Stewart and Janet Liegh are great. I'm a sucker for romantic duos-Stewart and Liegh work very well together. I want very much to see this movie again. It is a movie that can be watched more than once. The movie is a keeper for a DVD collection. Unfortunately, the movie is not available on DVD. I'm waiting anxiously for the movie studio to release Naked Spur on DVD. In the meantime, I can purchase it on VHS. I can't wait to see it again!

5.0 out of 5 stars More than meets the eye - and it's an eye-full. July 5 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
Beautiful cinematography and incredible locations frame what at first seem to be stereotypical characterizations. I chuckled through the first third of the film, was literally on the edge of my chair for the rest. The relatively light-hearted beginning sets the viewer up for a wrenching emotional fall. It is a haunting story about human nature that I am having a hard time shaking off. Stewart and Leigh are simply awesome.

5.0 out of 5 stars A tough and brilliant film! Jan. 26 1999
By A Customer
Format:VHS Tape
It's a shame that moviegoers often overlook the fabulous pairing of director Anthony Mann and actor James Stewart in the early 1950's. This film has a fine cast and stays interesting throughout. Stewart shows great depth as a tortured bounty hunter trying to bring a criminal (Robert Ryan) to justice. Tension mounts as three other people: Ryan's girlfriend (Janet Leigh), a Union deserter (Ralph Meeker) and a hapless prospector (Millard Mitchell) switch their loyalties along the journey. Give this movie your full attention and also check out Winchester '73, The Man From Laramie, and Bend of the River. After you see these Stewart-Mann westerns you will be asking yourself one question: Who needs John Wayne?

3.0 out of 5 stars Bande-son en français aurait dû être nettoyée ! March 12 2013
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
Franchement, la Fox pourrait faire un effort et nettoyer la bande-son française d'époque (grésillements constants).

Ce n'est quand même pas si coûteux aujourd'hui avec un logiciel !

Trois étoiles à cause de la fainéantise de la Fox.
