Plot Outline:

A wealthy ranch owner Shep Horgan (Ernest Borgnine) hires a handsome drifter Jubal Troop (Glenn Ford) as a cowhand, much to the delight of his beautiful wife Mae (Valerie French). Unfortunately the spurned lover of his unfaithful wife, Pinky (Rod Steiger), sows the seeds of suspicion in Horgan's mind by falsely accusing Jubal of messing around with Horgan's two-timing wife. -- MovieAddict

A western not concerned with the usual cowboy tough-guy rancher stereotype. You won't find much emphasis on gunslinging or horse riding here. 'Jubal' is a melodramatic tale of crossed relationships. This one loves that one, but that one loves this other one, and another one is kinda evil. None keep their emotions in check. It all leads to tense confrontations, brought on by extreme desires. The story is a take on a certain type of Shakespearian narrative, placed in a tame western setting. I think it succeeds. A nice piece of entertainment.

I am not really a lover of westerns but what’s a gal to do when her hubby wakes her up early on the one morning, yea Sundays that I permit myself to sleep a measly hour later than my usual 5am? He insisted that this western would be better than one of those romantic eBooks I usually devour on my kindle. With that in mind I set out to watch Jubal without the necessary popcorn, chips and soda because it was THAT early. I have to admit it really wasn’t too bad a watch and had all the drama, action and shenanigans worthy of Jezebel herself to keep me mesmerized and engrossed with its main characters who were all caught in a web of jealousy and suppressed emotions similar to that of Shakespeare “Othello.”

The movie begins when Jubal, (Glenn Ford) a wander...
