Pursued

Robert Mitchum is haunted by a childhood trauma. Also starring Teresa Wright, directed by Raoul Walsh.

An interesting Western / Shakespearean drama (I guess! I've never seen any Shakespeare plays.) The story is told in flashbacks, like in Film Noir, but it's slightly artificial since Robert Mitchum is telling the story to Teresa Wright who already knows most of it. I wonder if this film was an inspiration for Death Rides A Horse, since it has a similar scene of a boy being witness to the death of his family and remembering one of the killers having boots with a particular set of spurs.
