Editorial Reviews

Newly re-mastered in HD - one of John Wayne's most beloved classics co-starring his beautiful Wake of the Red Witch co-star Gail Russell. Angel and the Badman is also the first film produced by the legendary star and one of the loveliest westerns ever filmed. Wayne stars as Quirt Evans a notorious gunfighter who's wounded and sheltered by a Quaker family. Attracted to the family's angelic daughter, the hard-bitten Wayne undergoes a slow and subtle character transformation, but is still obsessed with killing Laredo Stevens (Bruce Cabot), the man who murdered his foster father. Harry Carey plays Wistful McClintock, a single-minded sheriff who's determined to bring Evans and Stevens to justice. Entrusting the direction to screenwriter James Edward Grant (Donovan's Reef), Wayne bolstered Grant's debut by tapping veteran Yakima Canutt (G-Men Never Forget) to handle the hard-riding second unit direction.

Terrific story, great cast.

Anyone could guess the outcome but it is very entertaining getting there.

ANGEL AND THE BADMAN (Republic, 1947), was John Wayne's first film as producer in which he plays a gunfighter out to avenge the murder of his foster father, and is reformed through the love of a Quaker girl, played by lovely Gail Russell. Not only is this one of Wayne's most popular films, it also happens to be one of the best examples of the genre employing all the classic ingredients but in an unconventional context.

Written and directed with sensitivity by James Edward Grant, ANGEL AND THE BADMAN has an unusual mix of gentleness and exciting action, set against the magnificent backdrop of Sedona, Arizona. Wayne and Russell have a wonderful onscreen chemistry between them, and project a simple, genuine honesty in their romantic scenes. Veteran character actor Harry Carey plays the sheriff hot on Wayne's trail who's determined to bring him in, and movie bad guy Bruce Cabot is good as the card cheat who killed Wayne's stepfather.

A staple in the public domain circuit, ANGEL AND THE BADMAN has been available for years on VHS and DVD in sub-standard quality transfers that were either dark and murky or soft and faded. Finally, the beauty of this film can be properly appreciated in Olive Films' new Blu-ray release that does full justice to Archie J. Stout's crisp black and white cinematography. The soundtrack, while clear, has slight fluttering in a few scenes, but it's not distracting. The disc has chapter stops, and there are no extra features. This pristine HD re-master of ANGEL AND THE BADMAN is required viewing for any John Wayne and western fan.

Highly recommended.

After seeing many inferior versions over the years, this is a revelation. The picture is well restored, and well worth a look. It also seemed to me that there was some footage included that was not included in the old "public Domain" versions. all in all, a very happy purchase.

Wayne proved you could make an excellent western without a big budget in his company's first effort. While it has somehow garnered a reputation as second-tier Wayne over the years, mostly due to surviving prints of the film being just okay, this is actually a very entertaining film with a great cast and good story. Having seen it several times quite recently, it has that special quality of being watchable over and over.

Much of the reason is the lovely Gail Russell. She was most certainly the prettiest girl in Hollywood and it's no wonder that Wayne fell in love with her. She was terribly shy in real life, and truly had to will herself to step in front of the camera. But the camera loved her and so did audiences. Angel and the Badman, The Unseen, and The Uninvited are probably her best moments on film. Her Penelope, the lovely young Quaker girl who prompts gunslinger Quirt Evans to give up his guns, is one of her best remembered roles.

Quirt (Wayne) has been wounded by his nemesis on the outlaw trail, Laredo Stevens (Bruce Cabot), and his gang is hot on his trail when Penelope and her father (John Halloran) rescue him during the chase. Bystanders are stunned when the Quaker family takes Quirt into their home to mend, knowing his reputation with a gun can only bring disaster for them. But from the moment they begin calling him Brother, much to his chagrin, they only see the good in Quirt and it begins to wear him down.

Or perhaps it's the big dark eyes of Penelope, and her ethereal beauty and faith in Quirt which causes him to gradually change. There is a bit too much talk at times, but it is balanced by a saloon brawl and some cattle rustling. It is the romance between Quirt and Penelope which is the heart and soul of things, however.

Olive Films finally gave this fine old John Wayne movie the quality treatment it deserves. I own two other DVD versions and the video quality of both is just terrible. Thankfully, Olive Films took the time and trouble to make a top quality video transfer of ANGEL and the BADMAN. This 1947 John Wayne classic now looks and sounds as good as it possibly can. Even though I've seen this movie several times before, this remastered Blu-ray version made it a joy to watch again. I am so happy to finally have a stellar copy of one of my favorite John Wayne films. Other John Wayne videos from Olive Films that I own are DARK COMMAND (1940) DVD, IN OLD CALIFORNIA (1942) DVD, WAR of the WILDCATS (1943) DVD, and THE FIGHTING KENTUCKIAN (1949) DVD. The video quality of all of these discs is excellent. They look almost as good as this Blu-ray.

An interesting tale written by first time director James Edward Grant tells the story of Quirt Evans, a gunman seeking the killer of his father. After a gunfight, Evans (Wayne) is nursed back to health by a pacifist Quaker family and falls in love with the daughter (Gail Russell). This was a John Wayne production which the actor hoped would lead Republic Pictures studio head Herbert Yates to green light Wayne's "The Alamo" which was to be sot in Panama. "Angel and the Badman" did only so-so business and Wayne left Republic to produce it himself in 1959--on a much grander scale. This was the last film before the death of Wayne mentor, Harry Carey and features a great Yakima Canutt stunt wherein a buckboard careens off a cliff into water. The Harrison Ford movie, "Witness" (while not a western) borrowed many story elements from this film--with no credit given writer James Edward Grant. A solid western love story with action--shot largely in Sedona, Arizona--which most Wayne fans should enjoy.
