Wells Fargo Days (1944)

*** (out of 4)

A stranger (Dennis Moore) arrives at a new town where he's not welcomed because people think he's yellow. In reality he's just not using his guns because the woman he's loves asked him not to but that changes after a friend is shot during a robbery. If you're a fan of Westerns then you should enjoy this 20-minute short from Warner, which benefits from a decent story and some Technicolor. The Technicolor is pretty much faded in the print shown on Turner Classic Movies but there's still enough detail to see some beautiful locations. The performances are also fairly good for this type of film with moore making a good hero and Louise Stanley fine as his love interest. The direction isn't anything too special and the "revenge" goes by way too fast but this is still worth watching if you enjoy shorts.
