Excellent example of an expansionist Western. Since it is a Lang film, there's still room here for considerable darkness and a deeply flawed hero, excellently played by Randolph Scott. Some of the comic business, though is sort of lame.

Lovely to look at, all in bright color! Joyous celebration of the pioneering work relating to the Western Union (1941) telegraph line, making communication between the east and the west easier. Stars Randolph Scott & Robert Young as friendly rivals, with Scott giving the more diverse performance having a dubious background. The plot wasn't develop enough for any major climaxes, but it was always a quality film fun to behold.

Starts of well but runs out of steam in the second half. It's still worth a watch though.

Hit all the Western tropes well with a good hero with a dark past and a fitting ending. The male characters were similar so I got them confused for awhile. Fav scene: the opening ceremony and cheering in the town.

Conquistadores estreava há 80 anos nos EUA. O segundo dos três westerns do Fritz Lang em glorioso technicolor e com um detalhe interessante e inusual para o usual whitewashing da Hollywood clássica: os chefes indígenas aqui são realmente interpretados por índios. Acho esse um filme deveras subestimado, assim como seus demais faroestes, especialmente porque a narrativa tem potência de tragédia clássica, é um mito erigido pela grande arte moderna: o cinema. Box Versátil Faroeste Vol. 9

I really enjoyed this Western and one of the best performances I've seen by Randolph Scott. The Technicolor looked great too.

Very weird to have a movie of this time where red face is actually recognized and recognized as a bad thing within the movie. Great landscape shots
