Legendary Hollywood director John Sturges breathed new life into the western and brought it to another level of greatness, with landmark movies such The Magnificent Seven and Gunfight At The O.K Corral. He also proved himself to be master of action/drama, with the equally iconic The Eagle Has Landed and The Great Escape. John Sturges expertly manages to bring all these elements together for Backlash, a highly original, unconventional western, brimming with tense, violent action and a plot riddled with mystery and suspense. Backlash features Richard Widmark, the menacing and unforgettable star of film noir masterpieces such as Kiss Of Death and Panic In The Streets. Co-stars accomplished actress Donna Reed, most renowned for her popular roles in It’s A Wonderful Life and From Here To Eternity. Backlash tells the story of one man’s journey in search of his estranged father and one woman’s attempt to discover the truth behind the disappearance of her husband, both of whom were possibly the victims of a brutal Apache massacre. But the Arizona desert is a harsh, merciless and unforgiving landscape filled with deadly secrets and few survivors.
