4.0 out of 5 stars Stories about Greed and Justice April 1, 2014
Rage at Dawn & Abilene Town

Westerns, or Cowboy Movies, were popular in the 1930s and 1940s (or earlier). They usually told of the conflict between the cattle barons (large corporate ranches) and small ranchers or homesteaders (small farmers). These conflicts were based on historical facts (which are censored from most school books). They became less popular with the rise of the Private Investigator stories in the 1940s and 1950. The search for a missing person is comparable to finding missing cattle. Here are their condensed reviews.

“Rage at Dawn” 1955
This color movie is the “true story of the Reno Gang from southern Indiana. Their looting, killing, and burning was similar to Quantrill’s Raiders. The Pinkerton Agency sent an undercover agent to get information. He pretends to be a train robber to get their trust and set a trap. The Reno brothers are caught and receive a severe punishment.

“Abilene Town” 1946
Abilene was created as a railroad station where cattle from Texas were brought for shipment east to Chicago. One side of town catered to the cowboys who came to spend their wages on a good time. Their money made the town prosperous. Homesteaders arrive to work the land and produce crops. Cattle ranchers do not like them, they use barbed wire to fence in their land. These families provide more sales than visiting cowboys. This story was adapted from the novel “Trail Town” by Ernest Haycox. [Cowboys spent their money because they would be fired and blacklisted if they owned a ranch.]
