Medicine and romance in the old southwest
3 December 2012 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

For Greer Garson's first film after leaving MGM she chose a western the only one in her career. Strange Lady In Town casts her as a woman doctor come to settle in Santa Fe, New Mexico territory. Her brother Cameron Mitchell is already there serving in the army. Also there is another doctor played by Dana Andrews who isn't crazy about the new competition. Dana's tomboyish daughter Lois Smith does like the new doctor however and Greer starts teaching Lois some feminine ways.

Garson with a new knowledge of medical advances pretty much shows up Andrews in many ways. But Dana's a bit confused here between jealousy and a little desire. Truth be told he behaves until almost the end of the film like a bit of a lout.

Mitchell however is a real bad one, somebody whom the army failed to discipline. His actions cause a crisis of conscience for Garson even with all the good work she's done.

Greer does look a little lost in the wide open west, but then again her part does call for her to be a fish out of water. Strange Lady In Town which seems to have anticipated Dr. Quinn Medicine Woman is a nice tale and there's a nice little bit performance by Nick Adams as Billy The Kid.

I think western fans and Garson fans will approve.
