Stranger on Horseback 1955 Joel McCrea Western Romance
Stars: Joel McCrea, Miroslava, Kevin McCarthy
About Stranger on Horseback. This excellent, meaty Western contains an interesting plot, thrills, brawls, shoot ’em up and balances action, suspense and drama. Stranger on Horseback is quite entertaining.
During the early days when civilization was pushing its frontiers farther and farther West, there roamed a special creed of men, neither outlaws nor officers of the law, yet more feared than either. Then appears a circuit judge in the old west and he attempts to bring a suspected killer to justice. The stranger judge arrives in town and the powerful owner gives him 12 hours to live. The judge runs afoul of the killer’s rich cattle baron father in the process.
Another Jacques Tourneur’s picturesque movie. This is a bright story about brave and honest Ranger, who is fighting crime in a town in 19th century America. Here we see beautiful filmography in decent Tourneur’s style. Mountains and stoned valleys. The film is an excellent example of the fantastic taste of this great director. His character is a hero, a hero who believes that judges serve God, like angels. We recommend this film to everybody.
