Man Without a Star ★★★ 1955

A cowboy helps ranchers stop a ruthless cattle owner from taking over their land. The conflict between freedom in the wild west and the need for order and settlements is powerfully internalized in Douglas, whose fight for justice will tame the cowboy code he lives by. You'll shed a tear for the fading frontier. 89m/B VHS, DVD . Kirk Douglas, Jeanne Crain, Claire Trevor, William Campbell; D: King Vidor.
