Devil's Doorway
This unusual western follows the travails of a Shoshone Indian who wins the Congressional Medal of Honor for fighting in the Civil War and returns to his Wyoming home. There he finds trouble when he encounters an Indian-hating lawyer who allows homesteaders to settle on sacred Indian land.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"Mann somehow creates a brutal tension simply from this visual presentation of themes, perhaps because the issues at stake here are so emotional."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
"Bleak, bitter attack on racial discrimination."
‑ Michael E. Grost, Classic Film and Television
"The film marked an important turning point in the growth of the Hollywood Western."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
