Any Western boasting the likes of Randolph Scott, Ernest Borgnine, and Lee Marvin should be an all-time great, but Stranger Wore A Gun proves that his films with Budd Boetticher were far superior to most of his films, and makes you wonder what Scott's Boetticher films would have been like if he'd had such great co-stars as he did in this film.

Scott plays a former Confederate spy who joins with an old war colleague to stage a gold robbery in Arizona. Scott changes his mind, and tries to stop the robbery. George Macready, playing the bad guy, is his usual despicable self, and Marvin and Borgnine are solid as usual as two of Macready's gang.

One of the problems with this film is that it was filmed for 3D, which is obnoxious and distracting, as objects and people point toward the screen for an effect which is no longer viable. The dialogue is also not as cleverly pointed as it was in Scott's better films.

Stranger Wore A Gun is not a bad film, but not in Scott's top five best Westerns, and possibly not even his top ten.

Columbia Pictures presents "STRANGER WORE A GUN" (1953) (82 mins/Color) (Dolby digitally remastered) --- Starring Randolph Scott, Claire Trevor, Joan Weldon, George Macready, Lee Marvin & Ernest Borgnine --- Directed by André De Toth and released in August 15, 1953, our story line and film, Having been a spy for Quantrill's raiders during the Civil War, Jeff Travis thinking himself a wanted man, flees to Arizona where he runs into Jules Mourret who knows of his past ... He takes a job on the stage line that Mourret is trying to steal gold from ... When Mourret's men kill a friend of his he sets out to get Mourret and his men ... When his plan to have another gang get Mourret fails, he has to go after them himself --- Yep, that's both Lee Marvin & Ernest Borgnine in supporting roles --- from the book "Yankee Gold" by John W. Cunningham --- This western cannot be compared with Scott's best like the ones he made with Boetticher, but it is stll enjoyable --- And Mr. Scott was secure enough in his stardom that he gave good lines and depth to the younger actors in the film.

Read random reviews of this movie and many will have some unfavorable things to say, however, if you, like me are a fan of Randolph Scott, this movie will more than satisfy.

When the movie was made no one knew Ernest Borgnine or Lee Marvin would ever reach the level of fame they came to, they were just hired to be the black hat, bad guys. And they both earned their pay for their respective performances.

And any western having Claire Trevor in a lead role is to my thinking just great. The chemistry between Ms. Trevor and Scott in this movie is a very comfortable, enjoyable thing to see. Though she received several Oscar nominations for her various film work, Claire Trevor did not make that many westerns so that her presence here cannot be viewed by any of her fans, again count me one, as anything but special. If you haven't watched an earlier Claire Trevor western, THE DESPERADOES with Scott, you need to do so.

The reviews here, however, do point to one distracting element in the movie, 3-D, and anyone of my age from the 1950s realized that 3-D with its special glasses of red and green, was supposed to be the cutting edge, new and coming thing, but it flopped. So we still have movies such as this with action and actors centering things toward the center of the screen. And never forget that John Wayne's movie HONDO was shot in 3-D too, for that is the way I saw it downtown at the local bijou back in the '50's.

3-D really is more comical in this particular western than distracting, though. Another problem with this movie is its mood: is it a comical western or a serious western. With the role that Alfonso Bedoya plays, stumbling and mumbling through broken English, a clown of clowns, do we take his role as the key one for a comedy.

Lt. Jeff Travis was a spy for renegade rebel William Clark Quantrell - who had torched and looted his way to a fortune. Now he's a wanted man - dodging his past loke so many bullets in THE STRANGER WORE A GUN. Travis arrives in Prescott, Arizona just as the law is leaving, and he finds the ex capital strangled by wholesale lawlessness. Holding the tightest grip is Confederate loyalist Jules Maurette. Maurette also rode with Quantrell - and takes credit for having once saved Travis' life. Stealing yankee gold is legitmate business to him - and with Travis' help as a spy, he hopes to "divert" pounds of it being shipped through Prescott aboard the Conroy Stage & Freight Company. With Lifelong flame Josie pulling his holster toward California and with the stage owner's daughter pushing his heart toward justice, Travis rides the narrow gold-route to a surprising depot. A Gold-meets-gun tale of wild west intrigue starring Randolph Scott and Claire Trevor.
