Critic Reviews for Yellow Sky
It has some good action and fine photography and ranks several notches above the western film standard.
For seventy-odd minutes, in this scorcher from Twentieth Century-Fox, the guns blaze, fists fly and passions tangle in the best realistic Western style.
Takes some unusual detours that allow it to stand out from the pack.
Audience Reviews for Yellow Sky
unheralded wellman western with gregory peck leading a band of outlaws across death valley to hole up in the ghost town of yellow sky. an excellent variation on the tempest/'forbidden planet' theme with anne baxter as a feisty gunslinger and richard widmark a troublemaking 'dude'. the last 5 minutes kinda sells it out but first rate right up until then
Excellent Western where Gregory Peck plays an Outlaw with a gang who is chased across the salt flats into what appears to be a ghost town where near dying of thirst they come across the beautiful Anne Baxter who plays the granddaughter of a miner. The gang is going to steal all the old mans gold until Peck goes soft for the young lady. All in All a great western and great acting by Peck, 4 1/2 Stars
Good cast, ordinary western.
