Night Passage is so similar in spirit to the successful collaborations between star James Stewart and director Anthony Mann that it comes as a surprise that this film is directed by James Nielson. Stewart plays Grant McLaine, ex-railroad employee and the level-headed brother of firebrand gunslinger The Utica Kid (Audie Murphy). When Grant is entrusted to guard a train delivering $10,000, The Kid's gang holds up the train and steals the money. Grant takes off to hunt his felonious brother down and attempts to convince him to go straight. Unfortunately, The Kid refuses, and the brothers face off in a showdown. ~ Hal Erickson, All Movie Guide

Worth watching but somewhat disapointing. by ASchoneberg December 23, 2003 - 5:54 AM PST
Not up to standards of Stewart's Anthony Mann directed westerns, this is entertaining but flawed. Pluses are Stewart's very likeable performance and lots of beautiful location cinematography (wherever this was filmed, the natural environment is splendid.) Dan Durea's performance as the worst of the bad guys is fun to watch.

The main problem with the film is the script; the story has characters making many decisions that are not believable.

The DVD is somewhat disappointing in that it has only mono sound and color that has deteriorated into muted slightly yellow tones. There is no supplimental material included except the original trailer.
