Jubal is striking evidence of Delmer Daves’ consummate craftsmanship.  A spatial contradiction: an endless plain under the cerulean sky that for which those confined to the nouveau-riche interior are longing; a seething conflict: between errant Jubal (Glenn Ford) and his well-named nemesis, Pinky (Rod Steiger), a lascivious scoundrel; two women, as usual, at opposite ends of the moral yardstick, are equally attractive in their excess, much also as the bumbling husband (Ernest Borgnine) who pays for his gullible ways.
