    I never even knew of this film - a Western starring Charlton Heston and made in 1957 I believe. Paramount is releasing this on April 19. Can anyone give some thoughts on this movie? I always seem to enjoy watching Heston in anything starring him so I suppose this will be a definite buy.

    I just watched another film by the same director, Rudy Mate, called The Violent Men (apparently he liked doing films with "violent" in the title) - it was quite entertaining, and from what I've read, so is Ten Violent Men.

    The new batch of Columbia westerns has great stuff - including the aforementioned The Violent Men, with Glenn Ford, Eddie G. Robinson, Barbara Stanwyck and Brian Keith, and, most especially, Delmer Daves' great film, Jubal, with Ford, Ernest Borgnine, and Rod Steiger.

    Heston plays a character similar in personality to his role in "The Naked Jungle". The reason why I like this film is because of Anne Baxter, who never looked better. Also, one of my favorite actors has a supporting role in this film, Gilbert Roland, who plays Heston's foreman in the film. Look for a young Tom Tryon as Heston's younger brother with whom he has a very strain relationship with. A solid western, but I never understood the film title, since, it implys that Baxter is the third violent person.

    I think this was made right after Ten Commandments. By this time, Heston and Baxter must have been tired of seeing each other after a constant three years of shooting two films.
