Running Time: 100 Minutes
Big-time western drama has resulted from John Wayne's first production
effort. Angel and the Badman is solid entertainment way above what might be
expected from its western locale and characters. It's loaded with sharp
performances, honest writing and direction.
Story essentials deal with a hot gunman of the early west who is succored by
a family of Quakers when he falls wounded on its doorstep. There is a gradual
absorption of the family's formula for living by the bad man, and in the end he
turns to the soil and the religion in a perfectly believable manner. Reformation
is achieved not only through his love for the daughter of the Quaker family but
through gradual realization that the faith of the Friends is a solid basis for
achievement of happiness.
Wayne does his best job since Stagecoach as the gunman. Gail Russell has
never been seen to better advantage as the frank and honest Quaker girl who
falls in love and actually pursues the gunman. Role is played with an
intelligent interpretation of the attraction between the sexes. Harry Carey
makes his sheriff role a stout contributer to the general worth of this
Archie J. Stout's camera takes full advantages of the wide open western
scenery and other production dress.
One of my all-time favorite movies and, in my opinion, one of Waynes best.
This one's got it all. Comedy, drama, and redemption. Both the John Wayne and
Gail Russell give fine lead performances supported by a colorful cast of
characters. I highly recommend this movie to all John Wayne fans. .
