Man From Laramie 1955 James Stewart Western
Starring: James Stewart, Arthur Kennedy, Donald Crisp
Man From Laramie Story Line. Mysterious Will Lockhart delivers supplies to storekeeper Barbara Waggoman at Coronado, an isolated town in Apache country. Before long, he’s tangled with Dave Waggoman, vicious son of autocratic rancher Alec and cousin of sweet Barbara. But he sticks around town, his presence a catalyst for changes in people’s lives, searching for someone he doesn’t know…who’s been selling rifles to the Apaches.
Director Anthony Mann and actor James Stewart combined to make several westerns and they were all very excellent. This is one of them and it gets high marks for an involving story.

Sample Video from The Man From Laramie
You may also enjoy the James Stewart-Anthony Mann 5-Disk DVD Set. In the 1950’s, James Stewart starred in a number of Westerns that cast him as a morally ambiguous loner. His persona was that of a man with a dark past and questionable motives. His work with director Anthony Mann during this time forever altered his public persona. The movies in this set are Winchester ’73 (1950), Bend in the River (1952), Thunder Bay (1953), The Far Country (1954) and The Man From Laramie (1955).
I also offer the fourth of five Westerns Mann did with Stewart, “The Far Country” to complete the powerful pairing of a great director and popular movie star.
Did you know?
Producer Aaron Rosenberg says that the reason Stewart and Mann never worked together again after The Man From Laramie was a disagreement over the quality of Night Passage. According to Mann (who worked pre-production) it was “trash”. Mann quit the movie, feeling that Stewart was only making the film so he could play his accordion. This enraged Stewart so much that the two didn’t speak again.
