Man From Laramie, The / The Desperadoes (Double Features)
The Man From Laramie
Under Anthony Mann's superb direction, James Stewart departs from his well-loved "ordinary hero" role and gives a riveting performance as a resolute vigilante obsessed with finding the man responsible for his brother's death. Among the suspects are an arrogant cattle baron (Donald Crisp), his sadistic son (Alex Nicol) and his ranch foreman (Arthur Kennedy, in the best picture performance of his career).
When Cheyenne Rogers (Glenn Ford), a hunted gunman, rides into Red Valley, he meets and falls in love with Allison MacLeod (Evelyn Keyes). Cheyenne is enmeshed in a web of intrigue and killing that leads him to the brink of a lynching. The Desperadoes was Columbia Pictures' First technicolor feature film.
