Overview

Raoul Walsh injects his expected artistry in the otherwise journeyman western Along the Great Divide. Feeling responsible for his father's death, marshal Kirk Douglas seeks redemption. He gets his chance when he saves murder suspect Walter Brennan from a lynch mob. The grateful Brennan accompanies Douglas to another town, where he can get a fair trial. Though found guilty, Brennan is rescued when Douglas nails the real killer. Along the Great Divide was Kirk Douglas' first western (he'd been rejected for the Montgomery Clift role in Red River)--and, need one add, hardly the last.
