Keeps a cool head
27 December 2013 | by bkoganbingSee all my reviews

James Warren and John Laurenz saddle up in Sunset Pass as a pair of Express company agents on the trail of some bank robbers. They get a line on one young cowboy who is the owner of a ranch in debt and falls in with outlaws led by perennial western heavy Harry Woods.

Unfortunately duty is somewhat mislaid when Warren starts falling for Clarke's sister Nan Leslie. And Clarke has a brush with conscience and saves Warren's life. After that it's anyone's guess how this story will come out.

Woods who usually plays thug type heavies shows a bit more intelligence than normal for him in these roles. He's a pretty shrewd villain who thinks fast on his feet. Good thing Warren keeps a cool head.

Jane Greer plays a Hispanic saloon singer who Laurenz takes a shine to. I'm not sure if Greer's voice is dubbed in her two saloon numbers, but I suspect it was. She was a couple of films from her breakout role in Out Of The Past.

Warren has a ballad himself. He's a singing Gary Cooper without a patch of Cooper's screen presence.

And it's positively sacrilegious to have anyone else play Chity Rafferty but Richard Martin.
