5.0 out of 5 stars Top notch Scott action flick.... April 15, 2000
Format:VHS Tape
Director Joseph H. Lewis and veteran prodcuer Harry Joe Brownteam up with Randy Scott, a young Angela Lansbury, and some excellentcharacter actors (Wallace Ford, Warner Anderson) to offer a very fine little Western that repays re-viewing. Scott, the outwardly stern but aging Marshall Calem Ware of the Colorado frontier town Medicine Bow, keeps order in his town, "hoping to outlive his times," as he says. Unkown to him two of the town's biggest businessmen are out to get him, open the town, and undo the "march of civilization." The film boasts one of the most remarkable saloon brawls caught on camera and a shoot-out where Scott is "killed" (well, he REALLY isn't dead, but the bad guys don't know that). Add the famous touring chanteuse "Tally Dickenson" [Angela Lansbury]who just happens to be Calem's wife [!], a cattle baron (whose wife is courted by one of the bad guys], and a huge hulk of man (Dooley Bryan)who helps the wounded Scott, despite Scott having shot his brother, and well, you have all the ingredients for great action and exciting adventure, and there's a slam-bang suprise ending, to boot. Dialogue is crisp, at times you even hear some things that could be said in Scott's masterwork farewell to movies, Peckinpah's RIDE THE HIGH COUNTRY. So, unreservedly recommended--a real treat. END

3.0 out of 5 stars Decent Randolph Scott Western July 21, 2005
Format:DVD
A Lawless Street is not on par with the great Westerns he made with Budd Boetticher, but it is decent in its own way.

Scott plays a marshal of a town that is barely holding on to lawfulness. His ex-wife, a traveling performer, comes to town at the same time that the two town bosses hire a killer to take care of Scott with the hope that the town will once again be wide open, and they will benefit by making lots of money.

The killer makes a play on Scott, and the town doctor allows the bad guys to think that they succeeded. The story goes from there. Scott is solid and reliable as always, and Angela Lansbury is beautiful as Scott's past and current love. This is not one of Scott's best, but it is an entertaining, fun western.

4.0 out of 5 stars Superior western October 28, 2007
Format:VHS Tape
Director Joseph Lewis enjoys a cult reputation and quite righly so for he made several quality B movies ,and if his best work lay in the film noir genre with movies like The Big Combo and Gun Crazy ,this is not to disparage his Westerns which include such fine taut pictures as 7th Cavalry and Terror in a Texas Town .
Lawless Street is another fine Western in which Randolph Scott plays the Marshall of Medicine Bend ,a man firecely dedicated to his job both from an abstract notion of justice and a form belief in the law .His wife (Angela Lansbury )leaves him when he refuses to abandon his principles despite being gunned down and seriously wounded .In his world view ,the influx of a gang of vcious killers is no excuse to simply walk away from his job .

The movie depicts how he sets out to deal with the problem and rally support.Directiom is lean ,economical and taut .The performances are universally excellent especially from Lansbury and Michael Pate as a likebale killer .The movie benefits indeed from such quality supporting players as Warner Anderson ,Jean Parker Wallace Ford and James Bell

This is eminently enjoyable and recommended unreservedly to Western lovers

Columbia Pictures presents "A LAWLESS STREET" (1955) (78 mins/Color/Widescreen) (Dolby digitally remastered) --- Starring Randolph Scott, Angela Lansbury, Warner Anderson, Jean Parker & Wallace Ford --- Directed by Joseph H. Lewis and released in December 15, 1955, our story line and film, Famed Marshal Calem Ware, whose strenous activities on behalf of law and order have exacted a toll on his personal life is keeping the peace in the town of Medicine Bend. Ware hopes to someday be reconciled with his ex-wife Tally Dickinson now a touring musical comedy star. Just as Tally arrives in Medicine Bend, Ware is forced to deal with big-time criminals Thorne and Clark, not to mention their hired gun Baskam. Will he do his duty and rid the town of his outlaw element, or will he hang up his guns as Tally wants him to? --- from the book "Marshal of Medicine Bend" by Brad Ward --- At first glance this may seem like no more than just another passable western, but it's got some meat on its bones ... director Joe Lewis really shines when it comes to building the suspense leading up to the inevitable bar room showdown between the villain and our hero Randy Scott --- One of the highlights is a lively saloon-hall number performed by Angela Lansbury.

Under Joseph H. Lewis (Director), Harry Joe Brown (Producer), Kenneth Gamet (Screenwriter), Brad Ward (Book Author), Ray Rennahan (Cinematographer), Paul Sawtell (Musical Direction/Supervision / Composer (Music Score), Gene Havlick (Editor), George Brooks (Art Director), Jerry Antes (Choreography), - - - - the cast includes Randolph Scott (Calem Ware), Angela Lansbury (Tally Dickinson), Warner Anderson (Hamer Thorne), Jean Parker (Cora Dean), Wallace Ford (Dr.

Joseph H. Lewis's touch is tangible here. I really liked the gimmick of the new gunfighter arriving every morning in Medicine Bend in order to provoke Randolph Scott. Recommended.
