Editorial Reviews

All Movie Guide - Hans J. Wollstein
The Man From Colorado is what they used to call a "psychological Western", which means that the main character is battling some demon or other, and in the end loses everything including the leading lady, and, ultimately, his own life. And Glenn Ford is certainly both disturbed and beset by demons as he meters out his own kind of frontier justice. Ford does a splendid job under what apparently was a difficult time for Columbia Pictures in general and this film in particular. The studio had reportedly cast Ford fully aware of the animosity that existed between the star and director Charles Vidor, who finally quit after three weeks of filming and was replaced by the more amenable Henry Levin. In addition, the fiery climax went out of hand and nearly burned down the film's Corrigan Ranch location in the San Fernando Valley. In lieu of these near-disasters, Ford's brooding may not be merely acting, but the final result is a taut and occasional quite moving Western.
