Civil War Espionage Game
2 February 2013 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

In The Redhead And The Cowboy Glenn Ford plays his usual amiable cowpoke who gets himself innocently caught up in a deadly Civil War espionage game. It all starts when he gets himself involved doing a little celebrating with saloon girl Rhonda Fleming who was certainly Paramount's favorite redhead back in the day.

In this film however Fleming is a Confederate spy and while she's entertaining Ford as part of her cover one of her fellow spies shows up with a knife in his back and a few last words about a message to be delivered. Sheriff Morris Ankrum is about to arrest Ford for a murder because Fleming fled the scene delivering whatever message she has to.

Along the way these two pick up Edmond O'Brien who is clearly not the cattle buyer he says he is. But just who is he working for?

This Paramout film moves nicely along and it has it's noir type aspects as poor Ford is trying to figure who is playing on what team. All three of the stars are out played in this film however by Alan Reed who is Quantrill type guerrilla leader Lamartine. Reed until he became the voice of Fred Flintstone probably has his best visible role with Lamartine. He gets a chance to play it broadly and expansively and even chew a bit of scenery and the diet is good.

Fans of the stars will like The Redhead And The Cowboy and everyone will just love Alan Reed in his role.
