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.
Next on Glenn Ford Westerns – the 50’s:
The Fastest Gun Alive (1956)
We’ve already had a look at Jubal (1956).
so moving on …
