Comments: Three women go mad in the frontier territory of Nebraska. The church decides to send them back east in a stagecoach, driven by one of the three affected husbands. Unfortunately, the randomly-selected husband is untrustworthy so an unmarried woman goes instead. She rescues a man from hanging--for claim jumping--with the promise that he'll help her make the long drive. This film chronicles their journey.
This Western is enjoyable. The filming is excellent, and the main characters are well explored. Directed by Tommy Lee Jones. It is based on a novel.
