Along the Great Divide ★★ 1951

A U.S. marshal and his deputy battle pursuing vigilantes and the untamed frontier to bring a falsely accused murderer to trial (and of course, find the real bad guy). Douglas' first western has the usual horse opera cliches supported by excellent cinematography. 88m/B VHS . Kirk Douglas, John Agar, Walter Brennan, Virginia Mayo; D: Raoul Walsh.
