Gambling cowboy terminus cast

Postby Gardar В» 17.12.2019

Sign In. Abilene Town Hide Spoilers. The film is set in , post civil war , in Abilene a biblical name meaning city of the plains , the pattern of the other celebrated cow towns of the Old west.

Randolph Scott is the brave sheriff of Abilene along with Edgar Buchanan , they are fighting to stifle the conflicts between homesteaders led by a young Lloyd Bridges and cattlemen who hire gunfighters Jack Lambert. Meanwhile he develops a loving triangle between a Saloon girl Ann Dvorak and a good girl Rhonda Fleming. The picture gets action Western , shootouts , a love story , musical numbers in charge of a gorgeous Anne Dvorak and is quite entertaining.

It's a medium budget film with good actors , technicians, production values and pleasing results. The film is totally set in Abilene Kansas which was the first of the major railhead cattle towns. From to it was a booming depot , shipping some one million Texas Longhorns by railroad to Kansas City and Chicago and meat markets in the East.

The place was selected as a terminus for Texas cattle drives in Then the long drives began from Texas over the Chisholm trail. At trail's end in Abilene the rowdy,free-spending cowboys attracted saloon keepers, gamblers , brothels and all types of frontier riff-raff , the town became notorious for its lawlessness. Gunmen were hired for a time to keep the peace in Abilene in the film the peacemaker results to be Randolph Scott and actually Wild Bill Hickok. With the numerous presence of homesteaders the town prospered , stabilized and grew , its lawabiding citizens decided to discourage the troublesome cattle trade with his transient cowboys and early requested the Texas cattlemen to drive their herds elsewhere , which they soon did and Abilene's role as a wild cow town came to an abrupt ending.

The motion picture is directed in sure visual eye by Edwin L. He realized a variety films of all kind of genres , though especially Western , the best are starred by Scott , all well screen-written as Abilene , Canadian Pacific , Cariboo trail , Fighting man of the plains.

In fact his last films were Westerns until his early death at Was this review helpful? Sign in to vote. Abilene, Kansas is at a critical watershed moment in its history and only town marshal Randolph Scott seems to realize it. That is Scott and a bunch of homesteaders led by Lloyd Bridges. They're the future of the place if they settle there permanently and grow their crops.

The homesteader has it over the cowboy. He's raising families for the future, not cain at the end of the trail drive. In a trend that seemed to start with Destry Rides Again in westerns, Scott has two girls after him in this film. Saloon singer Ann Dvorak and storekeeper's daughter Rhonda Fleming. You figure out who the marshal winds up with. Abilene Town doesn't lack for anything any western fan could hope for. Lots of gunplay and fist fights and the triangular conflict of cattlemen, townspeople, and homesteaders.

And it has a scene stealing performance by Edgar Buchanan as the county sheriff who becomes a hero in spite of his less than honorable ways. At the time that Abilene Town came out, Abilene, Kansas had one of the most famous people in the world calling it his home town. Eisenhower showed up himself with Randolph Scott and some of the rest of the cast.

A red letter day in the history of RKO studios. To be fair Ike never missed an opportunity to be a booster for the place he grew up in. Hey if the architect of D-Day gave his seal of approval to this film, how could any of you go wrong in seeing it? Excellent, under-appreciated movie, which I suspect fell into public domain because only cheap copies from original prints seem to be available.

Randolph Scott is rock solid in the unassuming characterization of a modest but moral man acting as a moderating influence between three distinct groups, the cattlemen, the homesteaders and the tradesmen in a frontier town. Each have their own agendas, and the most alluring enticement for Scott on the bad side of town is the brassy but captivating dance hall singer, Ann Dvorak, in one of the best performances of her career, who is so fresh and sexy in her several numbers that I can well believe a whole roomful of cowboys would just sit there, stone silent with their mouths open, staring at her as she dances and flirts through her songs.

I don't know if her voice was her own or dubbed, but she could sure deliver those lyrics! There's not a dull or extraneous scene in the movie, with many well cast characters, fistfights, gunfights, a cattle stampede, romance, comedy and first-rate film noir lighting and dialogue for those who care. And besides all that, I didn't notice until about the third time I'd watched it, Scott's horse follows him around when he's on foot like a pet dog.

Very subtle, never made a focus of attention by the director, one of the old-timers who had the sense to let audiences find their own points of interest. I think it's a classic. Strong, Unrealized Potential dougdoepke 25 March There's a good Western buried somewhere in this meandering screenplay.

Someone in production apparently decided it was not a movie for the audience to take seriously. Thus, Edgar Buchanan's county sheriff provides more than just comedy relief, coming perilously close to acting the buffoon. Ann Dvorak's dance hall entertainer shows spunk, but the overproduced musical numbers are obviously there to build up her star billing.

Between the comedy, the music and the romance, not a lot is left for plot development. And that's too bad, because the clash between Texas trail herders, and newly arriving homesteaders is nicely set up. Naturally the two sides are in conflict over land use; however, the focus here is on the commercial effect each side has on the town's prosperity. On one hand, the cowboys keep the saloons and bordellos busy this latter, of course, is just hinted at , but they also shoot up the town and bring little business to the merchants.

On the other hand, homesteaders offer the prospect of steady trade with the merchants and are peaceable, but they don't patronize the saloons or carouse in the bordellos.

Thus the town's business interests split into two competing factions based on commercial self-interest. Now, this amounts to an interesting approach to the usual farmer vs.

But this potential goes largely unrealized because of digressions with Buchanan, the unnecessary Scott-Fleming romance, and the overlong musical numbers. Note, as an indicator of the poorly disciplined script, its treatment of tallying up the potential profit numbers.

Merchants are shown switching sides once the profit margins favoring homesteaders are calculated. But the script can't resist continuing this with a brief comedic follow-up which turns a serious and revealing point into an unnecessary laugh line.

Anyway, Scott makes a very believable town marshal, ditto Dvorak as a musical performer, but glamorous Fleming looks out of place in the unglamorous role of a merchant's daughter.

As a virile homesteader, Lloyd Bridges really shows more energy and ability than the part calls for and is obviously on his way to a bigger career. And when Scott says at the end something like-- This is the way towns change-- after facing down the cowboys, I expect he was uttering a genuine frontier truth. Even then, towns went where the money is.

Nonetheless, the movie wastes a lot of that kind of potential, but may still please those who like to mix comedy, music, dance, and romance into their shoot-em-up's. Edwin L. Marin had a very varied directorial career. His first film was the excellent "movie" crime drama "The Death Kiss" , he then directed "A Study in Scarlet" From "Sequoia" to "Listen Darling" there wasn't a genre he didn't tackle.

He also directed some memorable westerns including "Abilene Town". Ann makes a great entrance putting her musical talents to good use. She runs foul of town Marshall Dan Mitchell for singing and carousing on a Sunday firearms have to be checked in on entering the town. There is bad blood between the homesteaders and the cattlemen.

The homesteaders have come to settle the land but the cattlemen want them out - they want the land for their cattle. Mitchell thinks the home- steaders will be there long after the ranchers are gone. After the farmers settlement is burned war is declared but the cattlemen are not the only ones with an interest in keeping the farmers out.

The dance hall is secretly on the cattlemen's side but the general store does some mathematics and realise that keeping the homesteaders happy will be very good for business. Hostilities come to a head when Sherry Rhonda Fleming in a thankless part sells barbed wire to a very young Lloyd Bridges as Henry. He is one of the young farmers and after Sherry has a vocal showdown with Mitchell, the way is paved for Sherry and Henry to form a romantic pair.

Mitchell, of course has had eyes only for Rita from the start. Edgar Buchanan plays the dithering Sheriff "Bravo" Trimble. In the expansive history of film Westerns, the theme of cattle men against homesteaders has been done countless times, and "Abilene Town" turns out to be one of the better explorations of that subject. Interestingly, it also throws in a third element, that of the general merchandise shop keeper who stands to benefit from making the right choice between the two.

Straddling atop that shaky fence is town marshal Dan Mitchell Randolph Scott , who has the vision to understand that what happens in Abilene, Kansas will have an impact across all the western territories sooner or later. The story takes place in , and most of the action occurs along Texas Street, where the best bar in town is called 'The Best Bar in Town', right alongside 'Joe's Texas Bar" and the simply named 'Saloon'.

A trail hand wonders what kind of town Abilene is with no bars on the other side of the street. When homesteaders begin to make their presence in town felt, Mitchell must perform a delicate balancing act between the opposing forces, and between two lovely young women.

Ann Dvorak is saloon singer Rita, who literally keeps Mitchell hopping with precision kicks in the shin. Sherry Balder Rhonda Fleming is the daughter of the main shop keeper in town, who pines for Mitchell, until homesteader Henry Dreiser Lloyd Bridges wins her over with an appeal to her sense of family values and homesteader principles of working hard and building a life.

Bravo has a unique nose for danger, and a compass that always points him in the opposite direction. He also has a penchant for a card game called 'fantan' which he would rather play than do anything else, and Big Annie Helen Boyce is always willing to oblige.

The film has it's fair share of saloon fights and gun play, though it gets a little disjointed during the cattle stampede that Cap Ryker's Dick Curtis men initiate to take down the barb wire barrier put up on the range land. Banding together, the homesteaders find the resolve they need to stand up to the raucous cattle drovers.

In an ironic twist, Sheriff Mitchell allows the carousing bad boys to tear the saloons apart. His 'way a rough street dies' speech near the end of the story is a fitting capstone to a turn of events that heralds the advance of civilization to a wild frontier. While in the background, shop keeper Balder does the math. With Randolph Scott in the starring role, I should have thought to count the number of outfit changes he'll go through before he tames Abilene.

It's a signature mark of his Western films, and he doesn't disappoint here, though for my money, I prefer him in all black. With the town cleaned up and ready to move forward, the men and ladies pair off neatly, Mitchell and saloon girl Rita, Dreiser with Sherry Balder, and would be mayor Bravo with Big Annie.
