Psychological Western - Rated NR - 100 Minutes - 1956
Jubal could just as easily have been titled Othello Out West, even though it was officially based on a novel by Paul I. Wellman. The Othello counterpart is ranch owner Shep Horgan (Ernest Borgnine). Horgan hires handsome drifter Jubal Troop (Glenn Ford) as a cowhand, much to the delight of the film's "Desdemona", Horgan's hedonistic wife Mae (Valerie French). The "Iago" of the proceedings is psychotic ranch hand Pinky (Rod Steiger), who, envious of Jubal, sows the seeds of suspicion in Horgan's mind by falsely accusing Jubal of messing around with Horgan's wife.
