Movie Reviews

Mitchum's second starring role for RKO.
Prometheus | USA | 08/27/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This is Mitch's follow up to Nevada, both made at RKO. Again he is teamed up with Richard Martin in his almost famous Chito Rafferty role. Also in this one is the lovely Barbara Hale, who would gain fame as Perry Mason's side kick Della Street. Hale actually steals this movie from Mitch and the others. In between Nevada and this one, a very interesting thing happened to Mitchum, similar to John Wayne's experience in Stagecoach that would propel him out of B grade Westerns and features. He was cast in a supporting role in The Story of G. I. Joe and was nominated for an Academy Award. Soon Mitch would no longer be doing oaters like this one."
Endearing B Western
The Night Owl out on the Town | Los Angeles, CA United States | 02/28/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"This neat little B western is typical of the sort of film that studios used to produce in quantity for kiddie consumption at Saturday matinees. When TV came along, they became the staple of Saturday morning at-home viewing.
This film has a neat, simple plot and sticks well to the basics. What raises it above others is the work of the two stars --- Robert Mitchum and Barbara Hale who both went onto much bigger careers, he in a long string of A movies (Out of the Past is only two years off) and she as the Emmy-winning Della Street on TV's Perry Mason.
Thurston Hall who had a career playing bankers, tycoons and senators gets a few laughs as Hale's father who sets out for the west on the advice of his doctor. Too bad ripe character acting like this went out of fashion. It enhances the movie considerably.
It may not be Shane or The Shootist, but it is darn entertaining."
Barbara Hale ;emerging starlet
Warren W. OLeary | Tecumseh,Mi. | 04/11/2007
(3 out of 5 stars)

"Puts on cowboy clothes to be a " woman's libber " from sexual advances and disguises herself in "drag"most of the movie. Her cowboy clothes are too baggy for any feminine sexuality to be expressed. She needed Edith Head to slim her cowboy clothes down ,ala, Jane Russell from " Son of Paleface ". Too bad for us."
