Edwin L Marin (1951)

U Certificate


Our Score
The last film of veteran director Edwin L Marin (Show Business, Johnny Angel) is little more than a routine western, with a fairly innocuous plot that deals with the coming of newsprint to the Wild West. Rugged Randolph Scott makes a most unlikely newspaper editor, and his predictable reversion to gunplay denudes the movie of any real suspense. But it's never less than watchable, despite a substandard supporting cast and colourless leading ladies in Phyllis Thaxter and Warner contractee Helena Carter.


A former gunman starts a new life as the editor of a newspaper in a small Texan town, but clashes with a powerful land baron whose underhand dealings he is about to expose. Tension escalates further when an enemy from the past rides into town, leaving him with no choice but to buckle on his six-guns one more time. Western drama, starring Randolph Scott, Phyllis Thaxter and David Brian.
