Wells Fargo 1937 Joel McCrea Historical Western Black and White
Stars: Joel McCrea, Bob Burns, Frances Dee
In Wells Fargo, we have the story of a company’s rise over decades as personified mostly by its agent, Joel McCrea, who marries Francis Dee along the way. The beauty of this film is in the recreation of the 19th century cities, towns, way stations, railroads, ships, steamers, streets and costumes.
The story rapidly covers many years. Each episode presents McCrea with some obstacles to overcome to make the business grow and serve people. In several places, the company competes with the U.S. Postal Service and it is made very clear that it out-competes them, sort of an early version of Federal Express and UPS. It also integrates banking with transportation by moving gold to nearby cities and using bills of exchange to effect payment in gold at a far away depository owned by the company.
Wells Fargo is energetic, boisterous, and a good history adventure – or lesson – while being thoroughly entertained!
