The restoration of this great western is amazing! I have had the DVD for years, and always enjoyed it, because it is such a nice story, with a great cast. But this Blu-Ray is like seeing the movie for the first time!!

Columbia Pictures presents "JUBAL" (1956) - (100 min/Color) -- Starring: Glenn Ford, Ernest Borgnine, Rod Steiger, Valerie French, Felicia Farr, Noah Beery Jr. & Charles Bronson

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.

Solid dramatic western - a blueprint for many 50s westerns

Jubal is an average but enjoyable western largely due to the fine actors in this film, particularly Glenn Ford, Ernest Borgnine, Charles Bronson, and Rod Steiger. In fact, I really enjoyed Steiger's performance in this film, playing a positively disgusting villain.

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.
