"This striking, original Western is one of De Toth's best films. It's also a fine vehicle for Robert Ryan, typically unflinching as a bull-headed cattleman..."
Robert Ryan and Burl Ives star in DAY OF THE OUTLAW, a gritty western that pits feuding farmers and ranchers against a common enemy--a group of bloodthirsty outlaws who want to take over a small, snow-covered town. The outlaws are led by Jack Bruhn (Ives), a man who strikes a hard bargain with the locals that may just save the town from a grisly fate.
