Jubal / 1956

Opinion

Reviews

My review? It’s a good Western – have a look.

Jubal / 1956:
Glenn Ford is now 40 years old and a full blown Western Movie Star in the Golden Era of Western Film – the 50’s. The notable cast of Jubal includes 4 other fellers: Ernest Borgnine, Rod SteigerCharles Bronson, and Jack Elam. Borgnine, Bronson and Elam have all been moving steadily up the ladder from being movie Extras – to Badguys – to supporting actor roles and now enjoy Star billing. Rod Steiger (the main badguy in Jubal) is already a well established actor for his roles in On the Waterfront (1954) (with Marlon Brando), and as that “low down dirty pig stealer” Jud Fry from Oklahoma (1955) (“where the wind keeps sweepin’ down the plain, and the waving wheat” …. well … you know what I’m talking about).
Meanwhile two gals, Valerie French and Felicia Farr have principal roles.

    He had a unique riding style. English, not western, but not any style English I know. Watch, next time. He holds his hands and the reins very high and rides sitting almost straight up.
