An odd little film that traverses a variety of genres. As a mystery movie, it does not really work. The sci-fi angle with how the crooks here are causing planes to crash is interesting though; same goes for the crime elements like the crooks communicating in code via a children's radio program broadcast. There is also a lot of mood-destroying comedy though (deafness played for laughs) and then the mounties randomly break into song at jarring points.

The humour is pretty hit-and-miss here with some particularly unfunny tooth pulling on a mobile stagecoach (with expectedly unpleasant results; see above), yet also some amusing bits and pieces, like pushing their employer's bride out of an open window to stop the ceremony from going ahead. The film never quite gets the balance right between romantic comedy and serious drama though (torturing of Amerindians for gold often takes a backseat).

While perhaps best known nowadays for playing the exorcist with a whip in the cult hit The Dark Power, Lash La Rue was popular way back for his whip stunts in budget westerns like this. His whip work is impressive here, yet we only get to see him use it twice, with much of the film disappointingly relying on gunplay. The best aspect of the film in any case is not La Rue but rather Al St. John as a goofy sheriff with a knack for clever diversions.

This not an especially well paced affair with the film too often taking a break from the feuding (and mischief between clans) for Tex Ritter to belt out a tune or two. The film is at least a little eerie to begin with though as the trio carefully walk through the seeming ghost town; there is also an impressive sequence towards the end in which Ritter and his two overly goofy companions manage to scare a superstitious Ernie Adams into spilling the beans.

''You're darn tootin' I did!''
''That means you love her''
''That's what I've been trying to tell her!''

(Father and daughter in the spirited and colourful ' Frontier Gal'; I love how one reviewer describes the interactions as ''verging on slapstick farce''.)

After a truckload of exposition as the protagonists reunite, this settles into a decent paranoia tale with the arrival of a mysterious woman, played well by Millie Perkins, whose true motives are unclear. The existential threat posed by a marksman watching them from a distance works well too; never clearly seen but always there, it is easy to feel how unhinged they get. Alas, the second half of the film is weaker as we actually meet the marksman.

This was John Wayne's first leading role and he is almost unrecognisably youthful; his voice also is not quite what as distinctive as it would become in years to come. Curious as it is to see Wayne looking and sounding so young, his character is not especially interesting and the overall story is stretched thin at over two hours and Wayne's love interest is simply dull. The film at least looks quite beautiful, shot in 2.10:1 widescreen and on-location.

Gene Autry has fun playing two separate characters in this comedy that casts him as both a Wild West movie star and a lookalike stuntman, with chaos ensuing when the stuntman is talked into impersonating the star at publicity events. Smiley Burnette is very funny as his fretting producer, constantly nervous that others will catch onto the ruse. Best of all though is all the back lot movie production scenes and shots of the stuntwork being filmed.

What were the two westerns that I watched before this one? Big Something? Only seems appropriate that my next film is:

26. Something Big (1971)

This gets off to a quirky start with Dean Martin carrying a small dog, riding a horse with false teeth and everybody saying "something big". The dog and horse ultimately add little plot-wise though, and the repetition of the title soon tires. The plot is icky too as Martin has to find a woman to trade for the gun, though there is some amusement in Martin stopping stagecoaches without robbing them as he searches for a woman, which baffles the authorities.

The SpoilersShow
1. In Old Oklahoma (Albert S. Rogell / 1943) 6/10
A solid but unspectacular tale of John Wayne as a rugged underdog prospecting for oil while navigating a love triangle and business interests with Albert Dekker's uncompromising tycoon. I wonder if the theme of of the unsympathetic capitalist oil magnate pitted against the collectivist poor farmers and Indians would have got made 10 years later, still less with Wayne as the head of the collective. The fact that it was written by women shows in the romantic subplot, which doesn't always blend convincingly with the main story.
2. The Great K & A Train Robbery (Lewis Seiler / 1926) 6/10
Entertaining silent with Tom Mix as a Lone Ranger-like hero foiling robberies on trains passing through the spectacular gorges of the Colorado Rockies. Plenty of impressive in-camera stunts, for which I'd say Mix's horse deserves at least equal credit.
3. Dakota (Joseph Kane / 1945) 5/10

5. The Man from Nevada (Gordon Douglas / 1950) 5/10
6. The Timber (Anthony O'Brien / 2015) 2/10
I chose this purely because I felt like watching something snowy and the screenshots looked pretty good. It succeeds on the snowy factor; it's a exceedingly snowy film. The photography is also decent. It fails on practically all other fronts. Two brothers in some remote mining town are assigned to capture their cracked father from an even remoter mining outpost in order to save their family's home from being foreclosed on. Beyond that I was often uncertain on what was happening or why. It's unnecessarily muddled thanks to clumsy editing, poor blocking and dialogue that's often muffled or fumbled by the actors. When you can make out their speech it's mostly pretentious olde worlde diction, presumably aiming for Shakespearian tragedy. The designer stubble and perfectly coiffed hair are decidedly modern though.

Probably the pick of this string of short films. A young boy falling asleep to a lullaby dreams of several brief adventures in the wild west.
Animated in modernist style, not the style of animation I usually like, nor the cutesy style Disney are known for, but it works perfectly here. I could've watched it for far more than the seven minutes it lasts.

1. Jonah Hex (2010, Jimmy Hayward): 5.8
2. My Darling Clementine (1946, John Ford) rewatch: 7.8 > 8.0
3. The Last Wagon (1956, Delmer Daves): 6.0 - A social issue Western that fails to make it point; firstly by only half committing to its issue by making it's protagonist a white man turned Indian instead of a real Native American. And lastly by a ridiculous illogical ending. Which is too bad, cause the acting by Widmark, the directing by Daves and the action all aren't as bad.
4. Gunfight at the O.K. Corral (1957, John Sturges): 6.0 - A typical bigger production Western with Burt Lancaster and Kirk Douglas as the big stars. It's not particular bad or poor, just very bland.
5. The Bravados (1958, Henry King): 7.8 -A western that starts off very unoriginal, and honestly pretty poorly written; it keep the reason of the protagonist mysterious only to create mystery, instead of characters asking the logical question why he's interested to watch the hanging of these men. But it gets better and better when the movie casts more and more doubt on the correctness of Peck's hunt on these guys. Gregory Peck really sells both the starting stubbornness and realization of his faults. It reminded me very much of Boetticher's Decision at Sundown.
6. High Noon (1952, Fred Zinnemann) rewatch: 7.5 > 8.0
7. Day of the Outlaw (1959, André De Toth) rewatch: 7.5 > 8.2 - A very good little winter Western with a great built up of suspense and well fleshed out characters.
8. How the West Was Won (1962, John Ford, George Marshall, Richard Thorpe and Henry Hathaway): 6.2 - Because of the Cinerama aspect-ratio the scenery shots and actions scenes are way better than those with actors, who constantly have to be in the middle of the screen. Like Scorsese said about superheroes movies; this is more theme park ride than cinema. But it so gorgeous it makes you fall in love with the American landscape.

Far from the brutal revenge film one might expect after a graphic and grueling pre-credits bit in which Clint Eastwood almost dies when wrongfully hung by a lynch mob, this is a curious film that often defies expectations, ending up more about the letter of the law in the Old West. The film tries a little bit to have its cake and eat it too; there is also a listless romance. For the most part though, this is a refreshingly different sort of western.

06. The Long Riders, by Walter Hill (1980) 7,5/10

Hill's fascination for slow motion kind of annoyed me, but it's a good western altogether...

07. Stranger on horseback, by Jacques Tourneur (1955) 8/10

Joel McCrea plays a judge who can't be bought, and John Carradine a prosecutor anyone can buy. That's certainly a lot of fun.

08. Una pistola per Ringo, by Duccio Tessari (1965) 7/10

A nice western with hostages and mexican bandits... A very elaborate plot also...

09. Il ritorno di Ringo,by Duccio Tessari (1965) 8/10

Same actors, different characters and story. A much better plot, though... And a finer use of the great score by Morricone.

Four marshals join a travelling show run by a quack selling magic elixir in this western comedy. The plot frequently comes to a standstill four the marshals to perform rope tricks, ventriloquism acts and occasionally sing, but it is all fairly entertaining, especially the lasso work, and Robert McKenzie is delightful as the eccentric salesman running the show, addicted to his own so-called medicine. The ventriloquist dummy has some snappy lines too.

7. The Return of Ringo (1965)
A good Spaghetti Western with strong action scenes, a typically strong Morricone score, and an intriguing Odysseus-returns-to-Ithaca plot.

8. The Tracker (2002)
Doesn't fit my definition of a western, but imdb disagrees. Anyway, it's a good manhunt/outback movie, with unexpected mythic overtones.

This begins decently with a lot of humour coming from a straight-faced Matthew Perry unsure of how to react to the kookiness of Chris Farley and others, with an amusingly unfunny sheep dung anecdote standing out in particular. The comedy soon becomes rather lame and repetitive though. Energetic as Farley is, his character is never particularly likeable and an ogling Perry barely registers as more sympathetic, while everyone else is silly.

30. The Gay Amigo (1949)

The basic story is no great shakes here, but it is curious to see a western from the 1940s that offers such a positive portrayal of Mexicans as brave and honorable and Americans as sneaky and deceptive. The chemistry between leads Duncan Renaldo and Leo Carrillo feels very real too. Nobody else makes much an impression though and a prostitute/romantic interest obsessed with getting golden sandals is more irksome than cute or quirky.

In all fairness to PUNQ, it looks like he's still in 1942 based on his last post. :D
