    I'll disagree with most of the comments here. This was a great film! The opening with the assassins waiting for the train with no music but only the sounds of the surrounding area (certainly amplified to an extent) was well thought out. The scene where our heroine arrives at the town and the camera does an extensive pan from the front of the station to the roof and beyond to the bustling town itself took a lot of planning. And the casting of Henry Fonda as an out and out baddy was nothing less than genius. This was no throw-away production.
    BTW - the only way to watch this is in widescreen. So many scenes were composed with panorama in mind.
