Lively Western!
25 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Cherokee Strip has a strong script and a strong cast to put it across. Richard Dix plays the strong but shy Marshal who is trying to keep his mind on "Marshaling" while being attracted to the beautiful census taker, the lovely Florence Rice. Florence looks absolutely beautiful in this movie. One thing I admire about Florence is her believability. No matter how bad the script, she makes you believe in her and her character. This is a very good script however. A strong supporting cast featuring Victor Jory, Andy Clyde move the story along. Look for Morris Ankrum in the supporting role of Hawk. Ankrum would turn up years later on the Perry Mason TV series as a judge in many episodes. One of the best scenes is the one in which Dix and Jory are riding together on a stage coach. Excellent!The Marshal always seems to be one step ahead of the bad guys. Fans of westerns will love this movie. Even if you're not a big fan of westerns, you'll be entertained.
