A classic lesser-known noir from Anthony Mann.
“You’ll be seeing me. You’ll be seeing me. Everytime you bed down for the night, you’ll look back to the darkness and wonder if I’m there. And some night, I will be. You’ll be seeing me!” – Jimmy Stewart as Glyn McLyntock
“I don’t need other people. I don’t need help. I can take care of me.” – Jimmy Stewart as Jeff Webster
The fifth and final Western that Mann would work on together, and a wonderful film.
The film that brought Stewart back into his life as a military pilot.
This movie relies on the music as the driving force behind the story of Glenn Miller.
Stewart expertly captures the desperation and drive of man trying to make it with his last hope.
With The Naked Spur, Anthony Mann could best be described as the Hitchcock of westerns.
