The Badlanders Overview:

The Badlanders (1958) was a Romance - Western Film directed by Delmer Daves and produced by Aaron Rosenberg.


Well-realized remake of The Asphalt Jungle, with a western setting. Two men, the Dutchman and McBain, have just been released from the Arizona Territorial Prison. Their plan is to pull off one last heist, which will support them forever. But along comes a wandering geologist to foil their scheme by trying to steal $200,000 in gold from under their noses. As the double-crosses pile, so does the tension. Borgnine and Ladd are magnificent as the ex-cons. Based on the novel by W.R. Burnett.
