Synopsis

Roy Ward Baker directs this brooding psychological Western based on a novel by Audrey Erskine-Lindop. John Mills stars as Father Michael Keogh, a determined and well-intentioned Catholic priest who arrives in a godforsaken Mexican village and quickly finds himself at loggerheads with a gang of murderous bandits led by Anacleto (Dirk Bogarde). The rivalry between the priest and the bandit leader intensifies, reaching its climax in a dramatic showdown over beautiful local girl Locha (Mylene Demongeot).
