Reviews:  "Winchester '73" is the first in a remarkable string of five classic westerns that James Stewart made with Anthony Mann in the 1950s (followed by "Bend of the River", "The Man from Laramie", "The Naked Spur", and "The Far Country"). It is also distinguished for having helped revive the Western at the box office, and for being the first film in which the star forsook a huge up-front salary in favor of a share of the profits--a strategy that made Stewart rich and forever changed the way that Hollywood does business. The movie itself is pretty darned impressive, too. Stewart traces a stolen Winchester rifle through several owners until he finds the man he's looking for. The final spectacular shootout in craggy, mountainous terrain is justly famous. "--Jim Emerson"
