Saw this a while ago. Please show this sometime. It showcases Janis Paige's talent. She was so beautiful.
One of the first Adult Westerns
This B & W 1946 wesern has some of best actors and charcter actors avaiable at the time. Dennis Morgan and Jane Wyman in particular, Arthur Kennedy and back up faithfuls like Barton McLean and Bruce Bennett, the man who never gets the girl, except in this film, he almost gets two. The title "Cheyenne" sounds like any typical title for an oat eater, but for a mid 40's film, there is as much sex, or implied sex as in todays films. That itself made this film different. All of the main characters are flawed, but not depicably so. Arthur Kenndy heads the routine gang of highway men, who are being outdone by a smarter, and as it turns out bettter connected thief, played by Bennett. Jane Wyman, is trying to play his faithful wife and restorer to the right side of the law. Dennis Morgan is the slightly tainted hired spy of Welles Fargo. Throw in Janis Paige as the floozy who seems ready to take on anything in pants, and the flic could be set in a modern movie, if you subtract the explicit sex scenes. But in 1946, they were not legal. Westerns of the time usually had the hero riding off into the Sunset without a girl, or without means of support. This film ends with Wyman and Morgan together, who have been trading barbs, sexual and professional until the last few feet of film. The film never won any awards, is not shown, or schedualed to be shown on TCM, but I think it deserves to be shown soon. TCM seems to avoid playing films like this, while constantly showing too many of the same films. Many TCM viewers are like myself, someone who grew up watching westerns in the 40's, and while many of them are not watching, this one is better than most.
