The Man from Laramie

1955 - Dir: Anthony Mann

Shown at The FeckenOdeon on October 30th, 2002

A Grade A classic western with James Stewart dominating the screen as he seeks revenge on those who killed his brother. Director Anthony Mann injects a toughness into the proceedings and this, combined with Stewart's totally committed performance, makes the film strong meat when compared to the standard horse opera of the period. The giant 'Scope screen is used to great effect and, even if westerns aren't really your thing, you can sit back and admire the gloriously photographed New Mexico landscape.
