A New Deputy For Randado
22 October 2008 | by (Buffalo, New York) – See all my reviews

County Sheriff Glenn Ford can't cover the entire area of his county, so he's got to have deputies in all the towns. When one doesn't prove up to the job, the leading citizens of the town urge Ford to appoint young rancher Cody Glenn who caught a couple of rustlers who had been plaguing the area for months. Ford give him the appointment, but the town doesn't back up the new deputy.

This is all at the urging of Jeff Kaake, son of Gale Wingfield who's the local Ben Cartwright in the area. He wants and gets a lynching of the Mexicans who did the rustling with no trial. That makes Glenn's duty quite clear, to go against the townspeople who so recently made him deputy and gave him their confidence.

Naturally of course Kaake has a hidden agenda, but for that you have to see Border Shootout. He's also having an affair with Charlene Tilton, a woman who was brokered in marriage to one of the town council, but just like her most famous role of Lucy Ewing, the young lady has needs. That part of the plot would not have gotten Border Shootout made as a feature film western back in the day.

The script also brings together all the dramatis personae together for a final shootout in a Mexican border town. One of the roles, Russell Todd, as a gunfighter hired by Kaake is really poorly defined in the story.

Glenn Ford who made some of the best westerns ever like 3:10 to Yuma, Jubal, and The Sheepman makes his farewell western in Border Shootout. I wish he could have gotten something better.

The film was nicely photographed in Arizona, I just wish the story matched the scenery.
