ERROL, this is the best of the three. I know that's movie heresy but I stand by it. I think it's because Joel McCrea and Virginia Mayo are such a good team and the story's more realistic if a bit sadder. I only wish it was in color (yes I know there's a colorized version out there somewhere).

 

My only gripe is that the captioning refers to the "Indians" speaking in a "foreign language" in their scenes which is not the movie's fault but the ignorant captionist. This is not only one of my favorite Westerns but favorite movies period.
