Film Review

Rex Beach's Western tale was much filmed over the years – including twice during the Silent era, and an early Talkie version co-starring Gary Cooper; my brother had watched the 1955 color remake, which was O.K. but uninspired. This earlier adaptation, however, stands as a prime example of the genre from the more innocent pre-war era; in fact, starting from the year after – with William A. Wellman's THE OX-BOX INCIDENT (1943), to be exact – the Western achieved sudden maturity that would lead to any number of masterworks in various veins (noir, psychological, elegiac, revisionist) till it died out towards the late 1970s.Anyway, this is a quite splendid film with all three stars (Marlene Dietrich, Randolph Scott and John Wayne) in good form; incidentally, all of them had just come from impressive individual work in the genre – DESTRY RIDES AGAIN (1939), Fritz Lang's WESTERN UNION (1941), and STAGECOACH (1939) respectively. Having preceded the film by the …

It gets off to a slow start, a story about miners being cheated out of their claims by crooked bureaucrats and gangsters. Takes an hour before you find out who the spoilers are. They do not include Marlene Dietrich, who plays the owner of the local "dance hall" or whatever it’s called, and whose affections Randolph Scott and John Wayne compete for.Boy, is she blond in this one, and with a wig that makes her resemble an olive on a toothpick. Wayne is a cocky guy, rarely serious, with a smile that eerily combines shyness with self-confidence. Scott beams with virility. There is a sneaky "good girl" too, who is actually one of the gangsters. No one puts much effort into any of the roles.It’s the kind of movie in which one of the minor villains takes a bead on a good guy having a conversation, is shot dead, and the talk continues without any remarks relevant to the recently deceased. If someone says something even vaguely offensive to another man, his reward is a sock …

One of Universal’s A cast B movies of the golden era that never even tries to elevate the material or challenge the actors. Strictly a ham and eggs Northern Western, with a few notable condiments. It’s always fun to see John Wayne throwing his fists around, and the climactic knuckle-fest, aside from the embarrassingly obvious stand-in for Randolph Scott in the full shots, won’t disappoint fans of cinematic saloon brawls. Also, good to watch a young Wayne playing scenes with one of his mentors, old western legend Harry Carey. But the script is one dimensional, Dietrich and Scott are collecting a paycheck, and a few moments of unfortunate racial humor don’t reflect well in this day and age. Unless you must see everything John Wayne or Dietrich ever made, skipping this one won’t cause you much harm.
