Reviews
ReviewSource Classic Film Guide
Review This is a very good Western, with an Oscar nominated script, directed by William Wyler. Walter Brennan won a Best Supporting Actor Oscar playing the legendary Judge Roy Bean; Gary Cooper plays a "drifter" who tangles with (then somewhat befriends) him. Forrest Tucker, Chill Wills, Dana Andrews, and Charles Halton also appear...Cooper, new to town, is suspected of being a horse thief. He is befriended by a local lady (Doris Davenport). He tries to win the judge's (Brennan) favor by saying he knows a celebrity, an actress (Lilian Bond), who's picture the judge has on his wall. Cooper uses the Judge's adoration to manipulate him by saying he can introduce him to her when she comes to Texas to perform. He also gets to know Davenport better and becomes involved in the town's struggle between farmers and ranchers (e.g. land use).
