Scott,Harry Joe Brown,Boettcher
Fine Western,starring Ford and Scott,Evelyn Keyes.Absolutely loved Ray Walburn as the blustering Judge!
I was pleasantly surprised by The Desperadoes. After watching several great Budd Boetticher westerns with Randolph Scott, I didn't expect much from this film, but I found it to be a very entertaining western that holds up well. There are many great performances here--in my opinion, headliner Scott is actually overshadowed by Glenn Ford, Edgar Buchanan, and Claire Trevor. One criticism: although the story is nominally set in 1863 (I believe), there were references to Custer's Last Stand and Deadwood, both of which took place in the 1870s. I ask you, who ever knew a western to play fancy with the facts?
