Editorial Reviews

Randolph Scott is a man with a mission in this classic tale, as he endeavors to build a railroad through the lawless land between Carson City and Virginia City, Nevada. It won't be easy. It might be deadly. Citizens are riled over this new era of steel-and-steam progress. And the man goading the populace just happens to be a furtive thief who knows stagecoach lines are easy targets. Andre Detoth ("House of Wax") directs.

I am a great fan of Randolph Scott and his classic westerns.

I, like many, first encountered Carson City in the early-60s, when WOR in NYC played it as its Million Dollar Movie. That meant multiple, sequential viewings for young, impressionable minds like mine.

Carson City features a taut script, excellent characters (led by the very creepy Massey) and very good direction by de Toth, a real pro. I think that Scott's portrayal of Kincaid probably served as a political blue print for many post-WWII suburban youngsters caught unawares in the cross-currents of the 60s. It did for me.

A final note about the music here, created by the great David Buttolph. Heroic, exciting and memorable, his score is the real star (or co-star) of this terrific flick. It's great to have it back in circulation after all this time.

I really enjoyed this movie with Randolph Scott he is a western icon there is plenty
of action with Randolph Scott in charge of getting the new rail line thru against some of the citizens of
Carson City but also Raymond Massey who plays the villain in this movie in not wanting the rail line
as he is the leader of a gang and wants to see the stagecoach line run so as he can continue
his robberies. Well worth watching.

Format: DVD
Warner Bros. Pictures presents "CARSON CITY" (1952) (87 min/Color) -- Starring Randolph Scott, Lucille Norman, Raymond Massey, Richard Webb & James Millican.

Directed by André De Toth

When a construction engineer known only as Silent Jeff Kincaid (Scott), commences building a railroad between Nevada's Carson City and Virginia City in the 1870s, he is met with hostility by the locals, who feel that where there are trains, there are bandits. And as expected, a criminal gang headed by A.J. 'Big' Jack Davis (Raymond Massey) begins drawing up plans to plunder Carson City. When Silent Jeff vows to get rid of the town's criminal element, the villains frame him on a murder charge.

Under appreciated and versatile actor Raymond Massey, delivers a nicely nuanced performance and devises a brilliant railroad heist. Both his performance and his scheme are well worth a view. It is definitely one of the cleverest railroad robbery schemes ever conceived in a Western, and it is filmed in a way that clearly depicts the various elements of the plan.

TV's Captain Midnight Richard Webb has a pivotal role.

Melodic score by composer David Buttolph gives this oater a first class treatment, with André De Toth at the directors helm loaded with action and stunt co-coordinators.

If you're a Randolph Scott fans will be satisfied, this is one not to be missed.

CARSON CITY is one of the better Warner Bros./Randolph Scott collaborations from the 1950s. Scott is up against "The Champagne Bandit," played marvelously by Raymond Massey. This is one of director Andre de Toth's better films, and quite enjoyable. Recommended.

My husband is a "western buff" and he thoroughly enjoyed the film. It was fast paced and well acted. I highly recommend it.

Great product! Unfortunately, Amazon has proven to me that they do not care about their customers. When I had an issue with a different product (Amazon's fault-defective product) I contacted Amazon and they refused to make it right. After I emailed them (seven times!) I never once heard back from them. What a TERRIBLE way to treat your customers!!! Beware! If you can, always try and buy items from the companies who make them directly...DO NOT go through Amazon. They do not deserve the money when they disregard their customers so terribly!
