It is no exaggeration to say this has to be one of the best westerns ever made.
The story never falters for a moment, it is extremely well paced, and not a wasted scene. Anthony Mann was one of the greatest film directors ever.
In this effort his cast is perfect. Gary Cooper is better than he was in High Noon. Lee J Cobb's performance as the villain would have won most actors an Academy Award. The rest of the cast are superb in their roles. Jack Lord (McGarrett on Hawaii 50) is great in his role.

Those who felt burned watching Gary Cooper's later movies will be overjoyed by this one. No zombie here, no sign of the They Came to Cordova Gary Cooper. Good western.

Director Anthony Mann makes one of the best Westerns in Man of the West. Gary Cooper plays a man ready to stand up to a gang of outlaws, even though he once was one of them. The role takes intelligence and patience to portray such a man. Gary Cooper is right on in being careful to survive in such a situation. Few westerns will stand up to Man of the West. I believe it took these types of men to survive in the early west.

The ultimate existential Western, and Anthony Mann's most hellishly sadistic movie. I've heard it described as a "psycho-horror western", which I think sounds about right. Not to mention the camera movement and shot composition are awe-inspiring. Mann's greatest film.
