Summary
"Saloon owner Vienna battles the local townspeople, headed by Emma, the local sexually repressed, lynch-happy female rancher out to frame her for a string of robberies. Johnny Logan is a guitar-strumming drifter with a dark past. He was once in love with Vienna. He has been offered a job in her saloon. Nicholas Ray's epic western is considered one of the most original westerns of all time. The women are far tougher than the men and some critics saw a bizarre allegory for the McCarthy era Red Scare"--From the producer. DVD format
