Stars in Ramrod: Joel McCrea, Veronica Lake, Don DeFore
Tagline: Men are so Easy!… A Little Lace, a Pair of Lips, a Touch, and they Kill for you!
A cattle-vs.-sheep-man feud loses Connie Dickason her fiance, but gains her his ranch, which she determines to run alone in opposition to Frank Ivey, “boss” of the valley, whom her father Ben wanted her to marry. She hires recovering alcoholic Dave Nash as foreman and a crew of Ivey’s enemies. Ivey fights back with violence and destruction, but Dave is determined to counter him legally… a feeling not shared by his associates. Connie’s boast that, as a woman, she doesn’t need guns proves justified, but plenty of gunplay results.
Director Andre DeToth (check out his unpronounceable real name) is the perfect overseer for a plot that features quiet treachery, hidden motives and raw violence. Note de Toth’s unflinching camera when filming the night battle near movie’s end and when filming the treacherous back shot on Foster’s front porch. It’s clear he’s bumping against Production Code strictures on what can be shown and what can’t.
Ramrod is an underrated Western with an adult story-line. The scenery’s great, the acting top-notch, and the action where it ought to be.
