Silver Lode
In this western, a damper is put on Dan Ballard's (John Payne) wedding day, when a group of marshals ride into town claiming he is wanted for murder. As Dan attempts to prove his innocence, he struggles to remain out of the clutches of the phony lawmen while discovering who his true friends really are.

Critic Reviews from Rotten Tomatoes

"In its understated lucidity, this 1954 Western, directed by Allan Dwan, is one of the greatest."
‑ Richard Brody, New Yorker
"This anti-McCarthyism western was inspired by High Noon, only it's more explicit."
‑ Dennis Schwartz, Ozus' World Movie Reviews
"The usually inexpressive John Payne is excellent as the tarnished hero Allan Dwan's sturdy 1954 western that twists into a nightmare of victimization and mob hysteria."
‑ Sean Axmaker, Parallax View
"Along with the unique Passion (1954), this is my favorite of Dwan's Westerns."
‑ Jeffrey M. Anderson, Combustible Celluloid
