Is Edgar Buchanan in every Western, or just the best thing in it?

Neat story with my Forrest Tucker as a bad guy.  Randolph Scott shows up way late in this, like near the 30 minute mark.

Silver City. 1951.

It’s ALL Edgar Buchanan ALL the time over here at Charles Starrett blog!

Abilene Town. 1946

Abilene town

Randolph Scott ruling, of course.  Ann Dvorak nifty, of course.

But Edgar Buchanan is perhaps more perfect than usual, if that’s possible.

Great bit with Scott’s horse silently following him as he tours the town in the moments before the final shoot out.

Another fairly sleepy movie with a great ending.  Saloons on one side of Texas Road, and Commerce on the other.  Violent end to stalemate, engineered by Scott.  Somehow Pro-Union with the Lloyd Bridges as the organizer of the homesteaders.  Troubling portrayal of money-obsessed shop-owner.


Brass Legend. 1956

Shades of Durango.

Great performance by Rebecca Welles

Fantastic final 10 minutes, especially jousting final shoot out!

“You know, that looks like Jim Douglass.”

Bad ass hero in the way that only Gregory Peck can play a bad ass hero.

John Ireland.  He’s a Good Guy in this one.


I share Bob’s skepticism.
