The tungsten war
9 August 2015 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

Without John Wayne's services to sell and with his B picture cowboy stable from the Forties Herbert J. Yates and his Republic Studio was hanging on by a thread. But in their last years they were producing decent quality films of which Hell's Outpost was one.

Set in the modern west Rod Cameron plays a Korean war veteran recently discharged who is a mining engineer in civilian life. From a deceased war buddy Cameron heard about a rich tungsten holding that the buddy's father Chill Wills has, but is being squeezed by the richest and meanest man in town John Russell.

Cameron cuts himself in on a share. He also cuts himself in on Russell's girlfriend Joan Leslie and that makes the war between these two personal.

Russell is one swaggering lout, a truly hateful villain. But Cameron himself is a flawed hero. That makes for some interesting issues for those who would like to support Cameron.

Other people to note in the cast are Kristine Miller as Russell's half sister and distinctly better half and Jim Davis who is a crusading small town newspaper editor.

Hell's Outpost is a nice B film, the stuff that was being shown regularly now on television and would be making Yates more money had he had the foresight to go into the new medium.
