Man Without a Star (1955)

Directed by King Vidor
My rating: 2 stars out of 4
(DVD, Universal)

Drifter Kirk Douglas takes a job as a ranch hand in Wyoming. He clashes with his bosses, makes love with the new owner, teaches his young pal how to shoot and plays the banjo in the local saloon. However, when rival ranchers start putting up barbed wire on the free range pasture he won't have any part of it. Fairly routine western livened up by Kirk (and his hair's) unrestrained enthusiasm, but also filled with sexist dialogue and shot mostly on the Universal back lot.
