Heaven knows what mood persisted on the set of this sombre Western, as it ended up being the last film for both Monroe and Gable, while Clift too was in something of a decline, despite his superb performance. Gable plays a cowboy who comes across divorcee Monroe when she's freeing captive horses with disillusioned rodeo rider Clift. Arthur Miller's intelligent script is a character study set as dusk falls on the Old West.
