Devil's Doorway (15-Sep-1950)

Director: Anthony Mann

Writer: Guy Trosper

Music by: Daniele Amfitheatrof

Producer: Nicholas Nayfack

Keywords: Western

A Shoshone Indian who won a Medal of Honor fighting in the Union Army returns home to find that he must contend with white sheep herders who use legal chicanery and violence to steal his people's land. Underrated western which was far ahead of its time; one of Anthony Mann's best.
