Storyline

Loner Cody trades with the Comanches to get a white girl released. He is joined on his way back to the girl's husband by an outlaw and his sidekicks. It turns out there is a large reward for the return of the girl, and with the Indians on the warpath and the outlaw being an old enemy of Cody's, things are set for several showdowns.

Trivia

There are numerous mentions of the "Stage to Lordsburg," the original title of John Ford's western classic, "Stagecoach", to which writer Kennedy is obviously showing homage. See more »

Goofs

When Cody pulls the saddle off his now fallen horse and flings it at a Comanche, unseating him, he doesn't take the time to unbuckle the cinch. Without doing that, the saddle would never have come off. See more »

Quotes

Nancy Lowe: If-if you had a woman taken by the Comanche and-and you got her back... how would you feel knowing...

Jefferson Cody: If I loved her, it wouldn't matter.
Nancy Lowe: Wouldn't it?
Jefferson Cody: No ma'am. It wouldn't matter at all.

Excellent story, Scott at his best, not to be missed
8 August 2005 | by (S. Paulo, Brazil) – See all my reviews

John Ford could a make a great film that happened to be a western, Anthony Mann could make great westerns with a dark side to them, Sergio Leone could do great stylized westerns but nobody could like Budd Boetticher do a pure, simple, conventional western, where the best would be in what seems to be minor details. Comanche Station is the story of a man, Randolph Scott obsessed with the idea of finding his missing wife, captured by the Indians. To him money does not matter at all, he is the opposite of Claude Akins who will do anything to get the 5000 dollars offered to deliver the woman Scott rescued from the Comanches to her husband. The "bad guys" here are not just bad guys, they are men who feel there is a chance to change their lives by getting the reward and that will be one chance in a lifetime. They also think that to survive in the west they have to be hard. Their sense of morality goes down the drain surpassed by these other feelings. Richard Rust (Dobie) is the one who in spite of everything has good feelings. Boetticher is an expert in action scenes and here he is as good as always. He does not need to make them in the dark because it is easier. An excellent story, which is a quality of every "Ranown" film, Randolph Scott at his best and the unique direction of Boetticher make "Comanche Station" a film not to be missed.
