MFW: Dear people,

I can't tell if my screw up on this post was due to my legendary incompetence in operating a blog - or whether it's due to WordPress changing things on their interface. Possibly both. I hope things are fixed now. I better play it safe and accept the responsibility. I'm surely capable of such feats. LOL! Onward. Thanks for watching.

The Violent Men / 1955

With The Violent Men we arrive at one of Glenn Ford’s better known and more popular Westerns.

Wikipedia says: “The Violent Men is a CinemaScope Western film drama from 1955. It was directed by Rudolph Maté, and starred Glenn Ford along with Barbara Stanwyck and Edward G. Robinson as a bickering married couple at odds with cattlemen in their small town. Brian Keith and Dianne Foster co-starred. Based on the novel Smoky Valley by Donald Hamilton.”

Richard Jaekel also appears.

People seemed to have problems with the title ... so they changed it.
I wondered about it myself.

Not a great Western ... but a great cast keeps it interesting.
