The one and only Spencer Tracy (Judgment at Nuremberg) stars in the 1954 Western Broken Lance as a fierce rancher who has raised his sons (played by Night and The City‘s Richard Widmark, It Takes a Thief‘s Robert Wagner, The Big Combo‘s Earl Holliman, and Hugh O’Brian) with a potent work ethic but little paternal affection.

Before long, the brothers are at each other’s throats, with dramatic results for the whole family. Directed by Edward Dmytryk, the movie also stars Katy Jurado (Bullfighter and The Lady), Oscar-nominated for her performance as Tracy’s outcast wife, and Jean Peters as the young woman who catches Wagner’s eye.

As supplier Twilight Time prints up only 3,000 copies of each title, be sure to keep an eye on the Twilight Time site or that of their distributor Screen Archives’s for the announcement of the prebook date (usually 2-3 weeks before the title’s street date) and get ready to reserve!
