Editorial Reviews

In this rousing, action-packed post-Civil War adventure, legendary Western hero Randolph Scott stars as Britt Canfield, the eldest of four brothers who have seen their family's Virginia plantation stolen by carpetbaggers. With no choice but to start over, Britt accepts a position to help build theYankee-funded Santa Fe railroad, where the straight-shooting ex-Confederate takes on superstitious Indians, crooked gamblers, vengeful war widows, and most dangerous of all, his three brothers, vicious Yankee haters who'll stop at nothing to prevent the completion of the Santa Fe. Even if it meanskilling their own brother.

Customer Reviews

Scott was a B actor and really never made it to the big screen so to speak.
Leo Younglowe
These movies may not be the most timeless parts of literature, but they are good entertainment, especially over the lean times of the TV year.
Blue Dog
Scott is caught between his own flesh and blood and his desire to help build the railroad as it stretches through the Western wilderness.
Terence Allen

Here we have dependable Randy Scott in a good railroad Western flick, well worth watching from time to time. The supporting cast is fine, and Columbia Studios did an excellent job in their production; good color print.

Columbia Pictures presents "SANTA FE" (1951) (87 mins/Color) (Dolby digitally remastered) --- Starring Randolph Scott, Janis Carter, Jerome Courtland, Peter M. Thompson & John Archer --- Directed by Irving Pichel and released in April 1, 1951, our story line and film, Set in the years following the Civil War, the film centres on Britt Canfield, one of four ex-Confederate brothers who head West to carve out a new life. While his three siblings cast their lot on the wrong side of the law, Britt accepts a job with the Santa Fe Railroad. Inevitably, Britt is obliged to bring his wayward brothers to justice, though he knows full well that the person responsible for their downfall is gambling boss Cole Sanders. In a well-staged climax, Britt squares accounts with the evil Sanders and his hulking henchman Crake --- take note when the Indian chief complains that the train is making too much noise, so Scott allows him to drive the locomotive, to feel that he is in control ... classic tales of "The Iron Horse" on, the building of the railroads was always a great theme for westerns and Santa Fe tell its story with plenty of good action scenes --- The creative team of producer Harry Joe Brown and star Randolph Scott turned out some of the best westerns of the 1950s, and Santa Fe is no exception.--- And Mr. Scott was secure enough in his stardom that he gave good lines and depth to the younger actors in the film.

Under Irving Pichel (Director), Harry Joe Brown (Producer), Kenneth Gamet (Screenwriter), James Vance Marshall (Book Author),Louis Stevens (Screen Story), Charles Lawton (Cinematographer), Morris W.

very enjoyable escapist saturday afternoon old technicolor flick. "routine" is also what Leonard Maltin has termed this movie but i agree with someone online at Amazon that says he can be a snob at times. I enjoy certain 2 and 3 star films as much as some of the highly lauded ones and this falls into that category. If u like the old western good guys against the bad decently done this will fit the bill superbly

In the aftermath of Civil War Britt Canfield (Randolph Scott) the eldest of four brothers late of the Confederate Army head west from Virginia looking for a fresh start. In a small town saloon they run into a small bunch of ex Union soldiers following a few hot words shooting breaks out and one of the Union soldiers is killed. The brothers escape the town and with luck manage to get on board a Santa Fe Railroad flatcar taking new recruits for laying tracks from Topeka across Kansas to the Colorado border. Britt joins the Santa Fe Railroad Company whilst his three brothers tie in with a bunch of no good crooked gamblers and would be payroll thieves led by Cole Sanders (Roy Roberts). Look out for a moustachioed uncredited Jock Mahoney (Range Rider) as Crake, Sanders right hand man. Troubles come and go for Britt not least trying to cover for his brothers whilst being right-hand man to Santa Fe Rail boss Dave Baxter (Warner Anderson), The love interest is provided by Union war-widow Judith Chandler (Janis Carter). The storyline is very similar to another Scott vehicle the superior WESTERN UNION (1940) but with Rail Tracks instead of Telegraph Lines!

As always Randolph Scott assumes an air of authority without seeming to do very much although without doubt he is the best thing in it, all the supporting cast are perfectly adequate without being outstanding. Unfortunately it leaves the feeling of being a poor mans version of Cecil B. De Mille's epic western UNION PACIFIC (1939) starring Joel McCrea. Santa Fe was another Scott-Brown Production for Columbia Pictures. Good quality color transfer to DVD. Well worth a look.

Format: DVD
The four Canfield brothers - Britt (Randolph Scott), Clint (John Archer), Tom (Peter Thompson) and Terry (Jerome Courtland) - are making their way west just after the Civil War. Oldest brother Britt is trying to help his more hot-headed younger siblings keep the peace, but it doesn't work very well when they are taunted in a saloon in Kansas, and end up killing a soldier. On the run from the law, they assume new names and by happenstance are soon working on the Santa Fe railroad on it's march west to build the Transcontinental Railroad. Britt finds a sympathetic friend in an ex-Union officer he had fought against, Dave Baxter (Warner Anderson) and soon becomes his right-hand man, acting as a troubleshooter against Indians, drink and gambling that threaten to slow down the progress of the railroad, which is on a race against time to get to the Kansas-Colorado border. His brothers, unfortunately, end up siding against him, working for the scheming Cole Sanders (Roy Roberts) running gambling tables - and eventually taking to more dangerous pursuits.

This 1951 production from Scott's friend and frequent collaborator Harry Joe Brown bears some surface resemblance to DeMille's Union Pacific of a dozen years earlier - Scott's job is much the same as Joel McCrea's in that film, and there's a romantic rivalry between Scott and his boss over Judith Chandler (Janis Carter) that occupies a bit of time, though Carter never comes close to having a dominant role the way Barbara Stanwyck did in the earlier film.
