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.
