Le légendaire James Stewart est au sommet de son art dans ce western éternel, devenu une référence du genre. Lin McAdam (Stewart) se lance à la fois à la recherche du meurtrier de son père mais aussi de son rarissime fusil, le Winchester 73. Il rencontre toute une galerie de personnages désespérés, un policier frisant la folie (Dan Duryea), un trafiquant d'armes sans foi ni loi (John McIntire), un jeune et fougueux chef Indien (Rock Hudson), ainsi que son propre frère (Stephen McNally). On retrouve également Shelley Winters, seul intérêt de McAdams en dehors du Winchester 73, et Tony Curtis dans l'une de ses premières apparitions à l'écran. Cette histoire des hommes (et du fusil) qui ont conquis l'Ouest et l'un des rôles les plus mémorables de Stewart, et s'est imposée comme un classique du genre. (Source :jaquette)
