[the town council asks Cass to resign]
Mr. Sam Bolton, Owner Boltons Emporium:
I hope you don't take this as a personal reflection on you, Cass.
Cass Silver, Marshal Flat Rock Kansas:
No, Sam, I don't. I take it as a personal reflection on you - all of you! The minute you people smelled money, this town got an attack of larceny. I don't blame it on Barrett; I blame it you. You're supposed to be respectable. You talk about law and order; you'd sell out for a copper penny - any one of you.

Twentieth-Century-Fox was second only to Warner Bros. in rehashing the plot lines of its earlier films. "The Proud Ones" was made a mere four years after "Red Skies of Montana" - but the similarities between the films are only too obvious. The newer film even features the same star, Jeffrey Hunter. Not only that, "The Proud Ones" incorporates music cues that Sol Kaplan composed for "Red Skies of Montana." The story of the Cinemascope picture is bound to evoke deja vu: a young upstart seeks vengeance on an older man he believes is responsible for the death of his father. As the young man, Jeffrey Hunter deserves credit for lending credibility to a character whose actions are anything but credible. He did the same miraculous job in "Red Skies of Montana." If anyone thinks Hunter was just a pretty face, his subtle work in these films should prove he had much more to offer.
The rest of the cast in "The Proud Ones" is also excellent, helping to make this one heck of a movie. Unlike its also good predecessor, this "remake" is a western. The genre was obviously chosen to make it seem different from the original. But make no mistake, the two movies are essentially the same. Watch them both and enjoy!
