You know I loves me some Randolph Scott Westerns.  This one is a railroad drama with post-Civil War North/South conflicts.

The shifting loyalties of Scott’s brothers is interesting, then impenetrable, and ultimately whimsical.  Boo for that.  Yay for Randolph Scott.

I’m not a big fan of the comic John Wayne films.  Guess what I think of this one?

This Randolph Scott film from 1953 shares a lot with Chinatown, 1974.  Locations: San Pedro, Los Angeles, Santa Monica.  Stakes: water rights.

But does Chinatown have a ‘bitch fight’ like this?!
