Mostly a western.
14 September 2004 | by (Easley, South Carolina) – See all my reviews

Broadway To Cheyenne starts off with a bunch of big city gangsters fighting and killing each other with Detective Breezy Kildare caught in the middle. When Breezy goes out west to the ranch where he grew up he runs into the same bunch of crooks. The gangsters are offering "protection" to the local ranchers. For the rest of the movie it's cowboys and gangsters.

Even though there is a story in Broadway To Cheyenne it just looks odd to see a bunch of New York City gangsters riding around the desert in a car fighting cowboys on horses. A gangster shooting a Tommy gun versus a cowboy with a revolver does not look right either.

As Breezy, Rex Bell seems out of place as a cowboy. It is easier to think of him as the big city cop because of the build-up in the beginning of the movie. He fights the same people he was fighting in New York. The characters are the same, but the setting has changed.

George Hayes does not play a sidekick, just an old cowhand. You can see the seeds of the Windy/Gabby character that he would develop later. He is not cantankerous, just rough and western. During the early 1930's Hayes played a variety of characters, so he could not be expected to be the old codger all the time. His role is minor, but he still has a great presence in Broadway To Cheyenne.

Broadway To Cheyenne definitely has the feel of a 1932 movie. If it were strictly a gangster movie or a western it would be perfect for that time. Instead it was a fun idea that someone decided to work with, but it was not a great western.
