Directed by Delmer Daves
Likable (and extremely gullible) ranch owner Shep Horgan (Ernest Borgnine) hires handsome drifter Jubal Troop (Glenn Ford) as a cowhand, much to the delight of Horgan's hedonistic wife Mae (Valerie French). But psychotic ranch hand Pinky Pinkum (Rod Steiger) is envious of Jubal and hoping to enjoy Mae's sexual favors himself - ergo, he sows the seeds of suspicion in Horgan's mind by falsely accusing Jubal of messing around with Mae. Within the maelstrom of emotions that develop, the virtuous Naomi Hoktor (Felicia Farr) comes to the aid of Jubal
Although often considered to be (Shakespeare's) `Othello Out West', Jubal is officially based on a novel by Paul I. Wellman.

The film is a relatively typical story of jealousy, betrayal, and revenge revolving around an unfaithful wife to the Ernest Borgnine character. All this ultimately leads to tragedy. I found the ending to be a little too convenient, but then this is nothing new for these kind of films that are basically designed to give the viewer what he wants and expects.
Any Glenn Ford fan, however, can't go wrong with this film. It is also cool to see a pre-superstar Charles Bronson in a supporting role, and as mentioned earlier, a great performance by Rod Steiger.
