Cowboy Ross McEwen arrives in town. He asks the banker for a loan of $2000. When the banker asks about securing a loan that large, McEwen shows him his six-gun collateral. The banker hands over the money in exchange for an I.O.U., signed "Jefferson Davis". McEwen rides out of town and catches a train, but not before being bitten by a rattler. On the train, a nurse, Miss Hollister, tends to his wound. A posse searches the train, but McEwen manages to escape notice. However a mysterious Mexican has taken note of the cowboy, and that loudmouthed brat is still nosing around. Who will be the first to claim the reward for the robber's capture? Written by
The musical score reminds me very, very much of Howard Hanson's "Romantic Symphony," a favorite of mine. Anyone else notice the similarity?
This is a beautiful little film, notable for its sympathetic characters, beautiful B&W cinematography, and gentle story (somewhat weepy).
The actors are quite good, especially Chares Bickford, who appeared in "Johnny Belinda" at about the same year, as Jane Wyman's father. Mrs. McCrae has an almost expressionless face, which is not good. Her husband is as handsome as ever.
