If . . .
19 July 2002 | by (God Bless America!) – See all my reviews

If you've only seen the 1925 version of this movie, you ain't seen nothin' yet. This new version packs in more thrills, more action, and more heartwarming Old West excitement than the original. I mean, let's face it, William K. Howard (I) just didn't cut the mustard as director back in the day; William A. Berke clearly blows him completely out of the water. And James Warren (I) clearly steals the show with his thrilling and deeply moving portrayal of Bob Wade, vengeful cowboy champion.

So, if you want to see an adaptation of Zane Grey's classic story of western justice, don't go see that sorry excuse for a film they made back in 1925. The 1947 version kicks its sorry butt all over town.
