Director Don Siegel said in his biography that he made a joke to a Deputy Sheriff of Arizona. Under the Sheriff's demand, he made fun of him by shooting a phony scene which has never been in the can. When the Deputy Sheriff finally knew the joke, he was badly angered against Siegel, and threatened him seriously and illegally. See more »
Shots of the County Courthouse show that the correct spelling of the actual Arizona county where the action is set is "Mohave". However, on one of the teletypes coming into police headquarters, the county's name is spelled "Mojave", the Spanish spelling. See more »
I taped Edge of Eternity when Channel 4 screened it some time ago and found it very enjoyable. Some reviews state this as a Western, but it is more of a mystery-thriller than a Western.
A Sheriff in Arizona investigates three murders around the Grand Canyon and is help by a woman and not surprisingly they fall in love with each other. The killer then takes the woman hostage and he is caught in the dramatic final showdown in a minor's bucket, high over the Grand Canyon.
Edge of Eternity has some magnificent scenery. especially the Grand Canyon scenes.
The cast is lead by Cornel Wilde as the Sheriff, Victoria Shaw as his love interest and Micky Shaughnessy. All play good parts.
This movie is a must see, just for the scenery. Excellent.
Rating: 3 and a half stars out of 5.
