Chief fault is that the picture over-emphasizes the single hanging incident of the novel, and there's not enough other action. Full Review

Rating: 3.5/4 -- Movies dealing with law and order rarely fall out of fashion simply because their themes remain forever relevant. This classic Western is no exception. Full Review

Rating: 4/5 -- Apesar do final que soletra a mensagem do filme, é um western atípico, denso e, principalmente, corajoso para sua época.

Rating: A- -- In contrast to the familiar Western device of the hero obliged to take the law into his own hands… a grim, messy cautionary tale about vigilante justice and mob rule. Full Review

Rating: 8/10 -- ...the movie suggests we had better look to doing the right and decent thing before we act on a majority decision made in the heat of the moment. Full Review

Product Description:

Taking place in 1885 Nevada, THE OX-BOW INCIDENT is the harrowing story of two cowboys, Gil Carter (Henry Fonda) and Art Croft (Harry Morgan), who believe in justice and honor and attempt to quell a lynch mob's thirst for revenge when they believe that a cattleman has been murdered by rustlers. Based tightly on the best-selling book by Walter Van Tilburg Clark and directed by William Wellman, THE OX-BOW INCIDENT is an unforgettable film; don't miss the powerful scene in which Anthony Quinn performs surgery on himself--it is an amazing moment in a brilliant film that received a well-deserved Academy Award nomination for Best Picture.

Plot Synopsis:

This William Wellman film tells the story of a frontier tragedy in which two levelheaded cowboys try to stop a hysterical mob from lynching some innocent men. Academy Award Nominations: Best Picture.


Production Notes:

  • THE OX-BOW INCIDENT was added to the Library of Congress National Film Registry in 1998.
