The Badlanders is a 1958 Western movie directed by Delmer Daves and starring Alan Ladd and Ernest Borgnine. The movie is loosely based on the 1949 novel "The Asphalt Jungle" by W. R. Burnett (earlier adapted into The Asphalt Jungle film noir (1950)), but the story is set in 1898 in Arizona. Peter Van Hoek ("Dutchman") (Ladd) and John "Mac" McBain (Borgnine) are released from prison and head separately to the town of Prescott. Dutchman, former mining engineer, was framed for the robbery of a gold shipment and wants to cleanse his name.
