Robert Wise’s Blood on the Moon, notes Melvin Carter, is “a Western for adults” predating Anthony Mann’s masterpieces, Devil’s Doorway (1950) and Winchester ’73 (1950), and his subsequent films built around charmingly evil personages. As he was in Pursued, Robert Mitchum as Jim Garry is in a welter of conflict in which deceivers become caught in the webbings of their desires.
