War Time Romantic Tale
26 November 2007 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

A Man From Wyoming has Gary Cooper in the title role of a western guy who makes a nice living in construction. We see him first building a bridge along with pal Regis Toomey.

America enters World War I and Cooper and Toomey are off to war in, what else, the Engineers battalion with Cooper a captain and Toomey a sergeant. One fine day, society girl June Collyer who is an ambulance driver and General E.H. Calvert's daughter gets bored with her job and goes AWOL.

Captain Cooper saves her life from her foolishness as Collyer wanders too close to No Man's Land. Of course he falls for her and the romance starts.

I'd have to say that A Man From Wyoming was nothing terribly special, a good wartime romantic tale. Cooper seemed to be cast in a bunch of these in the silent and early sound era, Lilac Time, Seven Days Leave, The Shopworn Angel and this one seem all to be leading up to his being cast in A Farewell to Arms and later in his greatest World War I film, Sergeant York.

June Collyer is no Joan Leslie who shared Sergeant York's background. Somehow as a civilian couple I couldn't see them making a go of it.

Still the battle sequences were nicely staged and it's a good wartime romantic tale though it will never make anyone's list of the top ten or even twenty Gary Cooper films.
