When John Stewart and Wick Campbell have their showdown, John draws and fires his revolver. There is the sound of a shot, but Stewart doesn't actually fire the weapon. He never cocks it and the hammer never moves in order to discharge a round. Also, there is no muzzle flash or gun smoke. See more »
A typical Randolph Scott film, but not a major effort
"Ten Wanted Men" probably would not make a list of must see films, for the simple reason that it was released during the 50's as a movie bound for the Saturday afternoon double feature bill at the local movie house. The viewer will recognize a lot of Grade-B western movie actors, and this does give a bit of nostalgia to the film.
Scott plays the rancher in the valley with most of the power and influence, while Richard Boone plays an up-and-comer who has designs to crowd in on Scott's area. Assisting Boone in this plan are veteran western heavies Leo Gordon and Lee Van Cleef and Dennis Weaver playing the sheriff before his "Gunsmoke" days. As indicated, it is a simple tale of the good guy against the bad guy, with a fistic brawl between Scott and Gordon settling the issue. A good film for the western fans.
