This film is one of the the most enjoyable westerns I have ever seen, more spectacular than Sergio Leone's earlier more famous trilogy. Its scenery, music, plot and acting kept me enthralled through its 159 minute length. A very blue-eyed Henry Fonda shines in a rare performance as a villain, in cahoots with the corrupt railroad boss. Charles Bronson and Jason Robards turn in first rate performances as the two who stand against Fonda's character, and defend the recently widowed Mrs McBain,a woman with a past from New Orleans, played with her usual sultry voluptuousness by Claudia Cardinale. You can read a lot into it in terms of how North America was opened up by the development of the railroad, with all the negative aspects that ensued or you can just sit back and enjoy
A great movie, perfect for a wintry weekend afternoon.

Sergio Leone's epic spaghetti Western starring Charles Bronson and Henry Fonda. Frank (Fonda) is a sadistic outlaw hired by a crippled railroad baron (Gabrielle Ferzetti) to murder a farmer named Brett McBain (Frank Wolff) and his family in order for his boss to inherit the land. When McBain's new wife Jill (Claudia Cardinale) arrives from Utah to find her family slaughtered, she vows to get revenge on the perpetrator, with the help of another outlaw named Cheyenne (Jason Robards) and a mysterious man known only as 'Harmonica' (Bronson).
