Bend Of The River

Although after I watched The Naked Spur, the villain in this film is not up to snuff with Robert Ryan's turn. Luckily there's Stewart once again being a strong lead, and the story itself is quite effective in creating a sense of personal  isolation for Stewart's character as everyone around him becomes more duplicitous than originally thought. It turns into a taught thriller by the end, and again Mann's importantly keeps a rougher edge in his version of the west.
