Technically, the film is near perfect, reminding us how good a Hollywood programmer can be, even at an inflated cost of seven million dollars. Full Review
Los Angeles Free Press
Rating: 3/4 -- ...a solid little Western that's worth a look if only for its refreshingly cynical sensibilities. Full Review
Reel Film Reviews
Rating: C+ -- Fails to deliver on a promising story. Full Review
Ozus' World Movie Reviews
If smart callousness, moral indifference and violence on the rockpile are what you are looking for, at least this ex- ample is rather conspicuously well acted. Full Review
There was a Crooked Man is a cynical tale of greed whose cynicism is buried in heavy handed direction and slap-dash construction. Full Review
Rating: 4/5 -- O senso de humor do filme desarma de maneira brilhante o espectador, pegando-o completamente de surpresa com o cinismo de seu terceiro ato.

Description by OLDIES.com:
Arizona Territorial Prison inmate Paris Pitman, Jr. (Kirk Douglas) is a schemer, a charmer and quite popular among his fellow convicts – especially with $500,000 in stolen loot hidden away and a plan to escape and recover it. New warden Woodward Lopeman (Henry Fonda) has other ideas about Pitman. Each man will have the tables turned on him.
