Surrounded by hostile Comanches, frontier widow Celia Gray knows the only hope she and her little boy have is to escape to Fort Dobbs. Their escort is Gar Davis, a strapping stranger who clearly has something to hide. Celia fears she knows his secret: he’s the man who murdered her husband. Clint Walker plays the mysterious stranger and Virginia Mayo is the ravishing widow in this Western tale of high-desert suspense and action. As the desperate travelers make their way through Indian attacks and the perils of a forbidding terrain, they’re joined by a gun trader (Brian Keith in a audience-grabbing performance) carrying high-performance rifles he’s looking to sell – and Gar worries that the Comanches will be the highest bidder.
Big man, big land, big adventure. Western fans get all three in Yellowstone Kelly, a strife-torn saga of American soldiers and Sioux warriors in the days after Little Big Horn. Clint Walker (Cheyenne) stars as trapper and U.S. military scout Yellowstone Kelly, drawn into the conflict when he saves the life of a beautiful Arapaho girl (Andra Martin) held captive by the Sioux. She runs off, Kelly gives her shelter and all hell-for-leather breaks loose on the plains. Rich Technicolor photography provides the stunning backdrop for brawling, hoof-pounding frontier action reliably delivered by two genre greats, director Gordon Douglas and screenwriter Burt Kennedy.
A fur-trapper named Kelly, who once saved the life of a Sioux chief, is
allowed to set his traps in Sioux territory during the late 1870s.
Reluctantly he takes on a tenderfoot assistant named Anse and together
they give shelter to a runaway Arapaho woman. Tensions develop when
Anse falls in love with this woman and when the Sioux chief arrives with
his warriors to re-claim her.
Those westerns produced by the team of star Randolph Scott and producer Harry Joe Brown tended to be several notches above the norm, and The Nevadan is no exception. Scott is cast as U.S. marshal Andrew Barkeley, who goes undercover in a federal pen to get a line on $250,000 in stolen money. Barkeley arranges for chief suspect Tom Tanner (Forrest Tucker) to escape from jail, the better to trail Tanner to the hiding place for the loot. If it were that easy, of course, the film would be over in 15 minutes. Complicating matters is avaricious rancher Edward Galt (George Macready), who also covets the stolen cash. Dorothy Malone adds "heart interest" as Galt's daughter. The chase and fistfight scenes are well-integrated into the suspenseful screenplay. The director was Gordon
Douglas, an efficient craftsman who nonetheless wasn't nearly as skilled
as Randy Scott's future collaborator Budd Boetticher.
