Last Train from Gun Hill

Deep-hued photography is main asset. Strong but odd performances from entire cast: Douglas never lets rage out except maybe a teensy bit when he hurts Holliman. Holliman for his part lets out some tortured squeaks that are equal parts authentic, pathetic and funny. Quinn's accent, as usual, is all over the place but he, as also usual, seems to be having a great time. Carolyn Jones excels but her makeup in the final shot makes her look ten years older than she is. Terrible lighting? It was odd.
