The Desperadoes
Not Rated
85 minutes
Action Western
1943

Columbia's first full feature in 3-Strip Technicolor is a rousing, archetypal western with a marvelous cast: Randolph Scott is the sheriff, Glenn Ford the crook who wants to go straight, Evelyn Keyes the good girl, Claire Trevor the bad girl (but not too), Porter Hall the evil banker, Raymond Walburn the slightly crooked judge, Guinn "Big Boy" Williams the comic nitwit (an explosives expert named "Nitro") and Irving Bacon the bartender whose saloon keeps getting reduced to kindling. Edgar Buchanan is the affable postmaster who's really the brains behind the bad guys.
