NotesRevenge film in which Stewart seeks out men who sold guns to Apaches responsible for his brother's death. He comes to a town run by a cattleman with a visual impairment (not blind). If I remember rightly this impairment is symbolic of the cattleman's weakness. One could also cite Stewart's character for obsessive behaviour and the son of the blind Waggoman as psychotic.
