Marion Hastings, absent from her Australian home, Rangle River Station, for many years while completing her education in Europe, receives a letter from Dick Drake, her father's ranch foreman, demanding she return home immediately. Marion, together with her chaperon, Aunt Abbie, flies home. While making flight connections at the Singapore Airport, they meet Flight-Lieutenant Reginald Mannister, an Englishman on his way to India. Attracted to Marion, however, he switches his tickets and embarks for Australia, receiving an invitation to stay at Rangle River Station. Upon arrival, Marion discovers Drake fighting with a rival ranch-foreman and, properly disgusted with his improper manners, she gives him a good dressing-down regarding his "brutal exhibition." Arriving at the old homestead, it is obvious to Marion why she has been called home; Rangle River Station is being beset by drought.

Ho-hum Silver!
10 November 2001 | by (Longmont, Colorado) – See all my reviews

Its hard to make a totally boring western, but these guys came as close as anybody! One would think that adapted from an orignal Zane Gray novel and produced by Columbia Pictures with a (medium) big name star like Victor Jory on board - something would have to give! It DID..the storyline!

One tough SOB (Jory) a ranch overseer, somehow manages to persuade the daughter of his boss to pitch-in and help her father through the tough times. I mean, is THAT one inspirational plotline or what? Toss in a touch of them feudin' Hatfields and McCoys and you should have yourself a rootin, tootin, dang-fire hotter'n Hell western! It never happens. Sensing the less than dynamic aspect to their finished product, the makers opted to re-name it MEN WITH WHIPS for overseas distribution. If they had had any brains at all they would have called it "WOMEN with whips!"

Charles and Elsa Chauvel scripted this tepid Aussie western which would be much like asking Orson Welles to write some new material for the Paul Hogan show! Interestingly (the only thing that IS) the cinematography was a collaboration between Errol Hinds and Damien Parer who had picked up Australia's sole Oscar two years earlier for THE KOKODA TRAIL.
