    The Ox-Bow Incident

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Part of Wild West Summer 2020

    19 - Watch a Western that is included in the National Film Registry

    Wow wow wow. I was 100% expecting for the sheriff to show up, or something to happen, anything that would save the three men--a big speech, or a fight, anything at all... up until the very last minute... but no!
