Robert Ryan (The Wild Bunch, The Dirty Dozen), Burl Ives (Cat on a Hot Tin Roof, Academy AwardⓇ winner* for The Big Country), and Tina Louise ("Gilligan's Island") star in Day of the Outlaw, a dark and unconventional Western drama from director Andre De Toth.
In the forsaken town of Bitters, Wyoming, tensions between homesteaders and cattlemen are high. When a conflict erupts between a farmer and ruthless rancher Blaise Starrett (Ryan), it appears that the icy relations in snow-covered Bitters are in danger of heating to a boil. But as a gang of outlaws under the leadership of Jack Bruhn (Ives) rides into town and begins to further threaten the town's way of life, Starrett must find a way to save the town, its citizenry—and his own soul.
With stunning black and white cinematography and wintry landscapes, Day of the Outlaw is a stark, powerful addition to the collection of any discerning fan of Westerns.
