An outlaw (creepy, psychotic Richard Widmark) forces his reformed pal (decent, married man Robert Taylor) to lead him to buried loot in this intense Western drama from 1958, filmed at MGM in CinemaScope.

"A highly watchable Western—probably [John] Sturges' best—stunningly shot by Robert Surtees, and with an excellent script by William Bowers (The Gunfighter, Support Your Local Sheriff).... Widmark (especially) and Taylor are both excellent, and the climactic Indian attack (with shoot-out) in a ghost town is superbly staged."—Time Out

"With sinister support from the likes of Henry Silva, Robert Middleton and DeForest Kelley, The Law and Jake Wade intertwines nail biting tension with breathtaking anamorphic photography to create a new kind of adult Western for fifties audiences, one that explores the psychology of the characters while depicting their acts of violence."—Mel Neuhaus, Turner Classic Movies

"Western characters must not be glamorized. I'm a Westerner myself, and I can tell you I don't go for that Stuart Lake baloney. You can't make a Western if it's pretty.... Always use a lot of back lighting, and don't let the star talk too much. John Ford, you know, made John Wayne a star by not letting him talk. But the absolute must for a Western is isolation. The man must be God. And you've gotta take issues that can only be resolved by guns."—John Sturges, in Peter Bogdanovich on the Movies
