Action packed, fast moving, enjoyable western.
12 August 2005 | by tmwestSee all my reviews

It is not as rewarding to do a typical western story as it is to for an unusual story. Gun Fury has a conventional story but the screenplay , besides being adapted from a good novel by Kathleen George has to its credit Roy Huggins and Irving Wallace. Huggins directed and wrote the script of "Hangman's Knot" an excellent Randolph Scott western and Wallace became a famous writer later on. The film also has Raoul Walsh as the director and that is quite an asset. The scenery and color are outstanding, and the fact that the film was made originally in 3D gives it some interesting scenes like objects being thrown at the spectator, also arrows, stones, even a threatening snake. Donna Reed plays a southern lady who is going to marry Rock Hudson. She is kidnapped, Hudson is almost killed and goes after her with an Indian (Pat Hogan) and Leo Gordon (Tom Burgess). On the way they meet Estella (Roberta Haynes) who is in love with the bad guy (Phil Carey), but has been rejected by him. Haynes gives a good performance, but considering she plays a Mexican, her Spanish is far from perfect. The real star of the film, even though Hudson is quite good in his role is Phil Carey, great as Frank Clayton, a man with no morals, who is madly in love with Donna Reed. An entertaining, action packed western, enjoyable from the first to the last scene.
