Four Faces West (1948)
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 David Steele
McEwen has an completely altruistic motive for robbing the bank, and he sets out on a long journey to fulfill his mission. In his trek across the desert McEwen comes upon a Mexican family who are desperately ill. They will die if he refuses to help and proceeds on his original journey. He shows his true nature and interrupts his pilgrimage to care for the family. Pat Garrett, who has sworn to catch the outlaw, overtakes McEwen at the poor hovel. The climax is suspenseful and is a fitting conclusion to this fine Western adventure.- Written by richardann
